*PLEASE NOTE: This course is pending approval*

The Graduate Diploma in Mining Law, Finance, and Sustainability will provide complementary interdisciplinary training to students whose backgrounds and previous academic disciplines are in fields other than Law. Our goal is to provide mining professionals (eg geologists, geophysicists, engineers), business professionals (eg those in finance or human resources), public servants, indigenous leaders, and advocates working with non-governmental organizations with knowledge of the key legal frameworks that govern the extractive industries in Canada and abroad. This will help them to understand issues in areas like environmental regulation, the rights of indigenous peoples, and applicable corporate finance provisions.

Visit the website: http://grad.uwo.ca/prospective_students/programs/program_NEW.cfm?p=271

Part-time students can complete the program in either three or four terms. As the Faculty of Law does not offer Summer courses, students would be limited to taking courses in the Fall and Winter. Part-time students will not be charged tuition during the Summer Term.
