Module overview

This module will enable students to apply their understanding of environmental problems in business and practice, and assess potential solutions through the application of law, policy, and management. The lecture sessions will introduce and analyse the theoretical development and structure of a legislative theme, followed up with an assessment of the application and management of the law through discussion of case studies. There will be a focus on what the legislation, regulation, and policy will mean to students when they are working with businesses, government (national and local), and the public after graduation. The over-riding philosophy of the module is to explore how the application and enforcement of legislation and regulation can lead to positive environmental changes in the industrial, commercial and political sectors. The emphasis in this class will be on discussion and group exercises. Students will be encouraged to participate in debates at every opportunity as opposed to traditional lecture based classes.
