The Master of Laws in Environmental Law gives students the opportunity to study an array of specialist courses, within both Australian and international contexts, examining not just the letter of the law but also the law’s inter-relationships with policy, politics, economics and science. Guided by some of Australia’s foremost environmental experts, you examine such areas as environmental planning, climate change, and water, exploring the law’s origins, enforcement, strengths and weaknesses. The Master of Laws in Environmental Law is available to students without an undergraduate law degree, but who are interested in, or through their work, require an understanding of environmental law. Many of the courses taught in the Masters program are available as single courses for professional development study. ANU Law has a world-class postgraduate program. ANU is the number one ranked Australian University in the world. Last year, 94 per cent of ANU academic research was rated at above or well-above world standard.
