The specialisation in environmental law provides students with expertise in a dynamic area of law that will continue to grow in importance. The course is of particular relevance to people working in environmental and resources sectors, professionals in government, legal practitioners and those with a broader philosophical or practical interest. The subjects are focused on emerging national and international legal issues and practices, such as in water law, climate change law, the management of land subject to native title and general planning and development. Other areas include the negotiation of international environmental treaties, the distinctive environmental law and policy of the United States and the laws surrounding international ‘commons’ areas such as Antarctica, the high seas and outer space.
