You will learn about a wide range of legal considerations across the mining, energy and resources sector, as well as gaining the necessary technical knowledge, such as how petroleum is produced or how iron ore is mined. You will benefit from a comprehensive and multifaceted understanding of the industry.
The Commercial and Resources Law course from The University of Western Australia is available for law and non-law graduates and is ideal for those looking to expand their knowledge of or seek a new career in the mining, energy and natural resources sector. Topics covered may include international investment in mineral resources, oil and gas law (locally and globally), corporate governance in the resources sector, climate change, agreements, project developments, mining law, environmental law and more.
This course prepares you for a career in the mining, energy and resources sector. For students with a prior non-law undergraduate degree, the Master of Resources and International Commercial Law provides useful knowledge of the law and valuable understanding of important legal considerations relating to large-scale resources-related projects. Students who have a prior law degree (as well as the necessary Practical Legal Training) may use the complementary knowledge gained in this course to act as Special Counsel/Executive Counsel in resources companies.
