The Environmental Law program is open to lawyers and those with degrees in other disciplines. It provides candidates with opportunities to meet and learn from others involved in environment-related disciplines. The program is characterised by a wide range of options and flexible learning arrangements, such as intensive units taught over a period of four to five days and the opportunity to take units from other related disciplines. It has expanded to meet the needs of both Australian environmental specialists and those from other countries. International and comparative environmental law units are offered with a focus on the Asia-Pacific region.
