Environmental Regulation

Offered as part of the Master of Laws program, this course is also open to management professionals seeking a professional development opportunity and a chance to engage with issues of environmental regulation.

Regulation is the most important single influence on corporate environmental behaviour and permeates substantive areas of environmental law.

Taught by one of Australia’s foremost environmental lawyers, Professor Neil Gunninham, the course shows why enterprises choose different strategies towards environmental regulation; why some increasingly choose to go ‘beyond compliance’; and how combinations of policy instruments can facilitate, encourage and reward sustainable business strategy and integrate environmental and economic performance.
