The minerals and energy law sectors are fundamental to the Australian economy, while their legal regulation has become a vital and dynamic area of law and legal practice across the world.

The purpose of the Centre for International Minerals and Energy Law is threefold:

  1. To be a leading research Centre that meets the present and future needs of all stakeholders in the minerals, petroleum and energy industry through the provision of high-quality and accessible research and teaching;
  2. To support The University of Queensland’s research activities within the minerals and energy sectors through the contribution of legal expertise, scholarship and research in relevant projects; and
  3. To collaborate in research, scholarship and teaching with international mineral, petroleum and energy law centres.
