Mining Law and Sustainability Program

The Allard Law Executive Learning Program in Mining Law and Sustainability provides the mining industry and other professionals the literacy and knowledge of legal and regulatory instruments that govern sustainable practices of mines throughout a mine's lifecycle. 

Sustainability and Indigenous Peoples’ participation intersect business decisions at every stage of a mine’s life. In the rapidly evolving landscape of the global mining industry, understanding the laws and regulations that protect human rights, address environmental challenges such as climate change and prevent corruption is key to making informed business decisions.
