Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a good first degree in law, or an equivalent qualification in a related discipline, and must be fluent in written and spoken English. We expect applicants who are not nationals of English-speaking countries OR have not successfully completed an academic qualification equivalent to a UK undergraduate degree taught in English to have an overall IELTS score of at least 7.0. Applicants with a first degree in a subject other than law will be considered, but it should be noted that this may restrict the choice of modules where content is dependent on a prior knowledge of law.

Course content

The Specialist LLM in International Energy Law and Regulation is one of very few LLMs in the UK and elsewhere which provide you with an in-depth study of energy law and regulation.

This masters degree emphasises the role of law in ensuring a sustainable use and trade in energy resources. It affords you the opportunity to study the subject in context - that means, you will explore the subject from the lenses of competition law, business regulation, and public international law.

The Specialist LLM in International Energy Law and Regulation takes a public-private law approach to energy. You will be given an opportunity to examine how public law regulates the use and trade in energy and to evaluate how private commercial parties could trade in energy resources.

You will also be given the support to research new and developing areas of international energy law under the guidance of your expert tutors.
