Course Description

The LLM in Water Law at the University of Dundee is unique. Masters degrees in Environmental Law, or in Water Resources, are delivered in many institutions across the world and may include a module in Water Law, there are no other Masters of Laws such as this specialising in Water Law. Added to this is the innovative executive-style delivery of the programme, where the core water modules are delivered in a summer school format. This is effective for part-time students, or those who wish to take only one or more of the water modules, on a short course basis. The programme is focused on the core area of Water Law, and includes teaching to enable students to study law at Masters level. Students can choose options in other areas of natural resources law, or related disciplines such as economics. Students will obtain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the three linked areas: International Water Law (the law of transboundary water resources), National Water Law (including water rights and water quality and taking a comparative approach) and Regulation of Water and Sanitation Services (looking at both the public and private sector and focusing on good governance). The programme utilises the global reputation of the UNESCO Centre within the University of Dundee - the Dundee UNESCO Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science is committed to the mission water for all, and in its innovative taught programmes aims to develop a new generation of local water leaders. Its unique summer school programme is aimed at water resources experts who wish to supplement their expertise with water law and leadership courses with an international network of water resources specialists as students and faculty. The UNESCO Centre achieved a high research rating in the 2008 RAE as part of the submission from the University's Law Unit of Assessment. The Unit finished among the top four in Scotland (out of 11), and among the top 19 out of 67 in the UK. All of its research was classified as being of an international standard.
