Environmental Litigation (LAWS8187)
The course aims to take students inside the practice of environmental litigation to teach the practical skills of being a litigator set within a wider theoretical context of environmental regulation.
The course is aimed primarily at litigation lawyers working in environmental law in private practice and government regulators but will also be relevant to managers, policy officers, and enforcement officers in environmental regulators.
Non-lawyers studying environmental law and policy are also encouraged to enrol as the course does not assume an in-depth knowledge of litigation.
The course aims particularly to complement training available to environmental regulators and to support the Australasian Environmental Law Enforcement and Regulators neTwork (AELERT).
Expected learning outcomes from the course are:
Managers of environmental regulators
Policy and enforcement officers
