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 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.
