This course provides advanced and integrated knowledge of the legal response to degradation, protection and use of the natural environment. This legal response has arisen from government policy formulation and the emergence of community values concerning the preservation, development and use of the natural environment. The course provides students with specialised knowledge of the key pieces of New South Wales and Commonwealth legislation and common law principles that seek to regulate degradation, protection and use of the natural environment. The course also focuses on the role of international law in responding to international environmental degradation and its influence upon domestic environmental law and policy. The course will draw on relevant interdisciplinary material to complement legal analysis of environmental problems.
