Course content

Summary

You study skills and knowledge necessary to work in and on the legal aspects of this vital global industry. Lawyers in this industry gain challenging work and are well remunerated. You can study private law such as joint ventures and contractual arrangements, and public law and regulatory aspects, such as environmental protection, health and safety regulation and taxation.You can also draw from one of the largest and most able teams of oil and gas faculty in any European law school.

In contrast to the LLM Oil & Gas Law with Dissertation, the LLM Oil & Gas Law with Professional Skills allows you to develop key practical skills required for the legal management of Oil & Gas exploration and production activity rather than a research dissertation. You study additional classes in this period to submit a portfolio of works (eg. briefing notes, reports etc).
