Birmingham City University Launches LL.M. in Planning Law

Program addresses economic, social, and environmental topics as they relate to planning

Birmingham City University has announced the launch of a new LL.M program in Planning Law.

The program focuses on planning law as it applies to issues in both the built and natural environments. It's interdisciplinary, in that it addresses the economic, social, and environmental topics as they relate to planning.

The LL.M. gives students the opportunity to pursue specialist pathways in either planning law or environmental planning.

According to the program's website, the LL.M. is designed to prepare graduates for careers in planning firms, commercial organizations like house builders, and government.

The program was designed through a partnership between Birmingham City's schools of Law and Built Environment. It's available either as a one-year full-time course or a part-time format delivered over 29 months.

To apply for the program, prospective candidates should have an undergraduate degree in law.

The program is set to launch in September 2015.
