Since its inception a decade ago, our environmental law specialisation has attracted hundreds of students from around Australia and internationally with very different backgrounds, undergraduate degrees and work experience. While many are just beginning their careers, many are well established in them.
This comprehensive specialisation includes an array of courses covering key areas in environmental law ranging from biodiversity to water, environmental planning and land-use to effective business regulation and enforcement.
The specialisation's aim is not only to provide students with a sophisticated understanding of the law but also to explore its origins and implementation, strengths and weaknesses. The programs on offer have interrelationships between environmental law and policy, science, economics and culture.
Each year a couple of Environmental Law courses are usually offered in Melbourne at ANU House, 52 Collins Street.
