Internationally, within the EU and nationally, there are many laws for managing climate change and other environmental problems. Environmental law is very complex and dynamic and experts are requested both nationally and internationally. The Nordic Master Programme in Environmental Law (NOMPEL) gives you a competitive degree. You will study in three Nordic countries, first at Uppsala University in Sweden, then at the University of Eastern Finland in Joensuu, and finally at UiT The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø.
The Master’s degree programme is administrated through the Uppsala University. All the important information related to the programme can be found at the website of the Uppsala university.
Why this programme?
The programme provides knowledge in environmental law at three levels: internationally, within the EU and in the different Nordic countries. The goal is to create good conditions for those who are interested in legal work in the field of environment, nationally or internationally, but also for those who wish to study for a PhD in environmental law.
The programme gives you basic theoretical and methodological knowledge in environmental law. You acquire special legal knowledge and skills within two key environmental fields: (i) management of natural resources and the protection of biodiversity and (ii) climate change and energy transition.
You will study in three Nordic countries, first at Uppsala University in Sweden, then at the University of Eastern Finland in Joensuu, and finally at UiT The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø. This gives you international experience within and alongside the education. Each university has its own cultural and social environment. The programme provides a financial contribution to travels between universities. Note that application to the programme is submitted to Uppsala University only.
It is a two-year programme with a range of courses. There is a strong research approach in the programme; almost all teachers have a PhD degree in law and, furthermore, students are expected to carry out their own investigations before seminars and to complete a Master’s thesis (30 credits). Law students from all over the world can apply to the programme. The group consists of a maximum of 25 students.
The programme leads to a joint degree from the three participating universities: Master of Legal Science (120 credits) (Uppsala University), Master of International and Comparative Law (University of Eastern Finland), Master of Laws (UiT The Arctic University of Norway).
