Aware of the need to systematically approach the study of the very diverse issues in which Biolaw is involved, from the Law School and in close collaboration with the "Center for Studies in Biolaw, Ethics and Health at the Universidad de Murcia ", The study program that is the subject of this Master has been prepared. Indeed, these are studies that, even though they are linked to the Law School, have a notable interdisciplinary dimension, for which reason collaboration with other university entities with a broader spectrum has been considered extremely pertinent. This is the case of the Center for Studies in Bio-law, Ethics and Health, where a large number of researchers from different branches of knowledge converge who can provide a broad vision of the subject to those who take the Master's in Bio-law: Law, Ethics and Science. In fact, a good part of the teaching staff of the Master is a member of the aforementioned Study Center. -

The MA in Environmental Law and Sustainable Development provides a unique specialisation in a rapidly developing area of law. Environmental law has grown rapidly over the past five decades and is now one of the key areas of both domestic and international law. The increasingly vast scope of environmental law is reflected in the umbrella notion of sustainable development that captures the links between traditional environmental issues and broader development concerns. Environmental law thus covers not only traditional nature conservation and pollution control issues but also broader the use and conservation of natural resources. In addition, we emphasise links between environmental regulation and other related fields of law, such as human rights, trade or intellectual property rights. -
