  • Canceled



This three-and-one-half-day international mining law short course, with an optional tour of an active mining operation and World Heritage Site mining town, is intended to provide international mining law practitioners, company managers, and related professionals with a solid foundation in the legal concepts, key agreements, and social and sustainability issues that are essential for anyone involved in mining projects or advises clients in international or cross-border mining or mining-related transactions. The diverse faculty are highly esteemed and widely experienced practitioners and academics from 11 countires who are known for their expertise in mining tenure systems, transactions, development, operations, agreements, and sustainability. The short course is ideal for early- to mid-career professionals, but more experienced attendees likewise will benefit from the approach taken in the course, which is to address the legal “nuts and bolts” aspects and more advanced concepts, taking into account both core industry contractual relations encountered, and the practical and social realities of successful mining activities within the broader societal benefits and impacts.
