Effective legal frameworks and institutions are pivotal in tackling inequality, alleviating poverty and creating a sustainable environment. The specialisation in law and development offers a choice of subjects examining the legalisation of development and the role of international and regional actors in law reform projects. Also offered is an investigation and analysis of both international law and the ‘rule of law’ in a developmental context. Subjects take a range of practical, historical, critical, applied and theoretical perspectives.
This program is ideal for those working in international development from a government, non-government or not-for-profit background, and those seeking to work in those areas or in international organisations more broadly, as well as for those who wish to undertake specialist study in the area in preparation for a research degree.
