Joint Nordic Master Programme in Environmental Law (NOMPEL)

Environmental law is very complex and dynamic and experts are requested both nationally and internationally. The Nordic Master Program in Environmental Law gives you a competitive degree. The programme provides knowledge in environmental law at three levels: internationally, within the EU and in the different Nordic countries. 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. 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. You will study at three Nordic universities, Uppsala University, The University of Eastern Finland in Joensuu and UiT The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø - all with specialist competence in Environmental Law. The teaching language is English and the programme is open for students of all nationalities.
