About the course

The School of Law, Gender & Media at SOAS is delighted to offer a Joint LLM/MA in Environmental Justice in South Asia in partnership with the National Law University Delhi, India.  

This jointly taught and awarded one-year programme explores critical issues from a Global South-North perspective while also providing students with a rich learning opportunity to learn directly from field exposure. The course incorporates a core taught component, a clinical component and a dissertation. 

Learning experience

The programme will provide a unique and transformative learning experience, which graduates can bring to careers in research, policy studies and international non-governmental and governmental organisations.

During the course, students will: 

  • have the opportunity to undertake a programme aimed at exploring issues of environmental justice through the lens of South Asia
  • be jointly admitted to both institutions and have access to resources from both SOAS and NLUD throughout the programme.  
  • travel to the UK and India as part of the programme, with the first term spent at SOAS on campus and the second term spent at NLUD on campus, followed by a dissertation.  

The programme has a single fee for all students regardless of country of origin. Upon completion of the programme, students will be jointly awarded a LLM/MA by both SOAS and NLUD.  

Living in London

Owing to the short-term stay in London for the course, you will not be able to stay in the main SOAS Halls of Residence. This means that your accommodation will not be booked via the SOAS Accommodation Office, but directly with our partner agencies.
