Michael Bennett, LLM in Environmental Law and Management
"I think that the law modules of the postgraduate taught LLM course give an excellent overview of the various areas of UK, European Community and international environmental law, and how they relate to one another. In addition, the courses in Environmental Auditing and Environmental Assessment illustrate some of the same issues from a more business-orientated, project-specific and practical implementation perspective. Another aspect of the Aberystwyth course, which is extremely useful, is the emphasis throughout all the modules on the special interdisciplinary nature of environmental law. That is, satisfactory environmental law and policy results from a holistic understanding of the related chemical, physical and biological, geographical and social processes as well as the construction and interpretation of well-drafted statues, European Community directives or international treaties. I found all the Aberystwyth tutors very friendly and helpful, and although the "jump in the dark" into legal jargon and law journals was at times a sobering experience, their support and assistance made the transition from geologist to lawyer a relatively painless process."
