International Mining and Natural Resources Law (5178LAW)

This elective will explore the development of law for an industry (natural resources), the areas of activity that need to be regulated, the methods governments and industry adopt for regulation, the regimes emerging for international governance (deep sea mining, near earth), a comparison of domestic legislation in various jurisdictions (Australia, PNG, Indonesia, South Africa, Canada, Myanmar, for example), and we will then analyse the skills that a lawyer may need to address the needs of an industry sector, by asking questions such as how does knowledge of legal concepts assist the provision of strategic guidance to clients engaged in a particular industry such as natural resources.
