Mining Law Courses Fall 2021
More courses are being added to the Mining Law curricula, including LAW 640 Comparative Mining Law starting on August 23rd and LAW 640G Introduction to the International Mining Industry starting October 14th, 2021.
Starting this fall semester, the James E. Rogers College of Law will also be offering two classes covering environment and sustainability in mining law. LAW 554 will introduce students to the foundations of environmental law and regulatory policy as well as non-regulatory solutions to resource and sustainability issues. For those interested in how social and cultural factors and local populations influence natural resource development, check out a new course titled MNE 697P The Emerging Framework for the Development of Mineral Resources.
“Through much of human history, we were not overly concerned about whether natural resource development was good for local populations, or whether they liked it... The social, cultural and environmental dimensions, and the local economic impact, were in the back seat, and whether local people felt they were receiving benefits was rarely considered an issue.”
