Consider a Masters in Sustainment Development Law

There has never been a better time to get a masters in the field of sustainable development law. The 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro was a remarkable event, bringing together more than 150 governments to agree critical environmental and developmental issues. For the first time in history, there was alignment between global superpowers on issues ranging from manufacturing practices, the future of the fuel industry, public transportation systems, how to protect the world’s indigenous people, and looming global water scarcity. Most importantly, there was agreement on what the most important issues of the earth’s future will be.

Out of the Earth Summit, the practice of sustainable development law was born. Governments suddenly needed to weave Summit recommendations into legislation on issues like international trade, domestic production, fuel sources, and environmental conversation.  Businesses, in turn, had to incorporate new rules and research into their manufacturing and other practices.  Law became critical to this process, translating international policy into domestic policy and in turn to company practices. Working at this complex level are talented professionals with a degree in Sustainable Development Law.
