The Law Faculty of the Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles and the Law Faculty of the Université cathlolique de Louvain jointly organise an Advanced Master in Environmental Law and Public Real Estate Law.

This Advanced Master covers not only public real estate law (land-use planning, urban planning, land policy instruments and measures, property rights and ownership, and so on), but also the multiple facets of environmental law (international, community, federal and regional law) as well as its interaction with other branches of law, from which it adapts certain techniques (tax, criminal and judicial law, and civil liability). Combining fundamental reflection and the examination of practical issues, the Advanced Master provides a concise and rigorous overall view of the fields of law that tend to converge due to the cross-disciplinary nature of ecological issues. Among other things, attention is paid to the interaction between the rules governing the implementation of land-use and urban planning and that of environmental law.

This programme is particularly adapted to the needs of a professional public. For this reason, courses are taught several times a week (17:30-20:30) and a few Saturday morning at the Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles. The persons registered to the Master are automatically invited to colloquiums and seminars organised by the CEDRE (Centre of Studies of Law and Environment) of Saint-Louis and by the Faculty of Law and Criminology of the UCL throughout the academic year.


The program runs over one academic year and consists of 60 credits. It consists of several parts: common issues (10 credits) Environmental Law (14 credits), Public Property Law (14 credits), optional courses (2 credits) and a final dissertation (20 credits).
