Climate Law - International and EU law in context
This program has been assessed as a level 3 law elective, 1 Deakin credit.
Approved by Business and Law

Legal frameworks, and laws set in place are no longer confined to the traditional nation state settings. Instead, in an ever-increasing globalised world, the influence of law from outside nation states, has huge ramifications for how the law today is formulated, debated, implemented, obeyed, and enforced.
The course aims to introduce the students to the international and EU legal systems, and to illustrate on the example of climate law how these two systems interact, complement and compete with each other, including their interaction with national law. You will acquire critical knowledge for engaging in discussion on the interplay between the different hierarchical levels of legal regulation, both generally and within the specific field of climate law.
