It's a rare option because most law degrees attempt to meet the requirements to be qualifying law degrees - which doesn't leave many free options for combined courses.

SOAS and Derby are the only 2 courses that appear on UCAS course search:

Are you looking for a combined course because you're interested in both subjects and how they overlap/interact? or because you can't make up your mind about what to study?

If you're interested in the crossover then something around urban/regional/town/environmental planning might be worth looking into or a human geography focused course or something around social policy or globalisation.

So you've got a few options open to you:

-take an environmental science/studies degree (or something like http://www.exeter.ac.uk/undergraduat...wall/#Overview which offers geography as a major and environmental law as a minor subject) and then convert to law and train to become a solicitor (can be more expensive but means you have a good knowledge of the issues).
-take a law degree, train to be a solicitor and fill in your environmental knowledge/learning in your free time
- as above but go to a university that offers the maximum amount of flexibility around your non compulsory law modules like https://www.keele.ac.uk/ugcourses/law/#tabs-20 (you could take 1/3 environmental science/studies modules and still have a qualifying law degree).
