The main aim of this module is to provide you with an understanding of environmental law in the UK. To fulfil this objective, we shall initially examine the way in which the UK's membership of the European Union influences the formulation of environmental law and how European pressure has lead to a change in the way this law is implemented. We shall then study existing environmental law in the UK on air, water, land and industrial hazard.
