Tapping into the growing need for lawyers with interdisciplinary knowledge, this programme will equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to operate effectively at the intersection of energy and environmental matters. Our programme produces lawyers that understand how environmental law affects the energy industry in its physical, technical, economic and political context.
As growing energy demand coincides with the need to move away from fossil fuel dependence, law has a central role to play in enabling the shift to low carbon energy whilst maintaining energy security and the transition to environmentally sustainable economic development.
With a unique choice of energy and environment courses from Corporate Environmental Liability to Oil and Minerals for Good, you will benefit from an advanced understanding and sharpened critical analysis across many key areas.
You will acquire detailed and cutting edge knowledge about the current position of energy and environmental law and an understanding of how this is likely to change.
The programme covers matters of core interest for policy-makers, not only from an energy and environmental perspective but in all fields that provide the foundation for socio-economic functionality and corporate policy.
This programme was designed in consultation with a range of external contacts within the field as well as teaching staff from the University. This additional input ensures that the Master’s degree is aligned to industry competencies and needs. You will benefit from the programme’s specific focus on intensive professional skills courses, including a professional communication component.
The main difference with the LLM Energy and Environmental Law is the replacement of the dissertation with two intensive professional skills exercises.
