New LLM programmes at UWE focus on current global problems

There is little doubt that two of the most pressing contemporary issues facing countries around the world are the banking crisis and the environment. In response, UWE is introducing two new LLM programmes, commencing in September 2009. The first is in International Banking and Finance and the second in Environmental Law and Sustainable Development.

The current banking crisis has highlighted, in dramatic fashion, the importance of effective banking and financial services regulation. The LLM in International Banking and Finance* has been designed to provide students intending to work in an international banking or other commercial environment with an understanding of key aspects of the international banking and financial systems, including international financial crime, the necessity for corporate social responsibility and the significance of ethical banking.

The LLM in Environmental Law and Sustainable Development* offers a unique opportunity for students to engage with the challenges posed by climate change and the need for sustainable development. The programme recognises that environmental law must be seen in the context of the social and economic dimensions of development. It explores global environmental issues such as biodiversity protection, water management and renewable energy from the perspective of both developed and developing countries.
