2015 Energy and Resources Law flyer

Melbourne Law School
THE MELBOURNE LAW MASTERS 2015
A CLASS ABOVE
ENERGY AND RESOURCES LAW
This specialisation is a response to the explosion
of interest in energy and resources management
in Australia and throughout the world. It builds on
Melbourne Law School’s long-standing strengths
in the energy and resources sector.
Energy and resources are dominant in the Australian economy, and have long been
so. The management of these resources presents formidable legal challenges for
governments and private enterprise, at global, national and local levels. Australia’s
record in meeting these challenges is internationally recognised, and Australian
energy and resources companies operate successfully in many parts of the world.
Melbourne Law School’s specialisation in energy and resources law allows lawyers
and other professionals to gain expertise and skills in statutory and contractual
regimes governing exploration and production, sophisticated commercial transactions
relating to those activities, project finance, regulatory controls and resolution of
resources conflicts, drawing upon Australian experience and applying it globally.
Courses include
Master of Laws (LLM)
Master of Commercial Law
Master of Energy and Resources Law
Graduate Diploma in Energy and Resources Law
The Melbourne Law Masters is a world class program available to law and
non-law graduates that deepens knowledge, sharpens practical insights
and offers international perspectives in specialised legal fields. Taught by
more than 200 leading experts the program offers an extraordinary range of
subjects at the cutting edge of law, legal thinking and practice. The program
offers more than 175 subjects across 23 specialist legal areas.
