Specialization in Mining Law & Policy

MLS Students

The MLS Specialization in Mining Law takes advantage of the world-class educational resources in mining and mining law available at the University of Arizona, including at the College of Law, the Lowell Institute of Mines, the Department of Mines and Minerals, and other science-related departments, such as the Department of Geology. As a result of these resources and the strong collaboration between the law school and departments undertaking mining-related research across campus, we are able to offer students both broad and deep training in a variety of aspects of mining, from the business side of mining to regulatory compliance with tax, environmental, and human rights-related laws and norms.
