We are committed to providing impactful education to support action at all levels, ranging from (research) students to expert practitioners at the world's leading law firms and NGOs. Our education cuts across disciplines and jurisdictions and is global in scope.

We teach graduate and DPhil students across the University of Oxford, for example as part of the new MSc in Sustainability, Enterprise and the Environment at the Smith School, as well as BCL, MJur, and MSc in Law and Finance courses at the Faculty of Law. We also (co-)supervise doctoral students and accept visiting research students.

We helped launch the Oxford Sustainable Finance Student Society, which gives students at Oxford a platform to work together on sustainable finance, law, and policy.

Our current courses (and courses we contribute to):
