Free online course in International Climate Change Law and Policy
The University of Newcastle's Law School is offering a free online course (MOOC) in International Climate Change Law and Policy on the edX platform. The course is coordinated by Dr. Elena Aydos (Newcastle Law School, UON), Dr. Sven Rudolph (Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies, Kyoto University) and Professor Christopher Kellett (School of Electrical Engineering and Computing, UON).
It is a four week course and classes commence on 17 July 2019. Students will learn to critically assess Environmental Economics theory and its application to climate change policy, including the use of market-based policy approaches such as environmental taxes and emissions trading.
This course on it's own does not generate credits toward a degree programme. However, it is a 'taster' for LAWS6038 Law and Economics of Climate Change, which is an elective course in three postgrdaute law programmes offered by the University: the Juris Doctor/Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice; the Master of Laws (LLM) and the Master of Environmental Law. So, if you are considering studying law in Australia, this online course is a great way to get a feel for how law is taught at the University of Newcastle.
Enrolments are open via the edX online platform.
