Centre for Mining, Energy and Natural Resources Law
The Centre for Mining, Energy and Natural Resources Law has a successful research record going back to its establishment within the Law School at The University of Western Australia in 1990.
It was initially established in recognition of the importance of both the resources and the commercial sectors to the Western Australia economy. In recent years the focus and emphasis of the Centre broadened to include a wide range of mining, energy and natural resources law matters.
The research areas of the Centre all have practical elements and this engagement enhances the research of the Centre by ensuring it is relevant and current.
