    Master Environmental Law and Policy


The Master of Environmental Law and Policy (MELP) provides an inter-disciplinary study program that meets the knowledge requirements of students interested in careers in environmental law, and environmental policy and management. This novel interdisciplinary environmental program is the only one in Australia to fully integrate the otherwise separate disciplines of law, policy and management. Students will acquire an advanced level of knowledge and analytical skills in relation to the issues, challenges and conduct of environmental law, environmental policy and environmental management, and the areas of interaction between the disciplines. The program provides opportunities for in-depth study and research in respect of the interrelationship between the environmental legal system, the frameworks and tools of sustainable environmental management, and the complex policy issues presented by the environmental challenges of the 21st century. Not all courses are necessarily available in any one year.
