Course content

Energy is crucial to our social and economic lives, and yet we’re having to do more with less against depleting natural resources and mounting environmental concerns.

The global nature of energy and environmental issues makes understanding the role of law in mediating and influencing those issues a vital area of study. The programme will help you develop an advanced understanding of key legal principles relating to the international energy industries, as well as an analytical view of the shifts in policy towards sustainable solutions.

Our LLM in Energy and Environmental Law will equip you with the essential skills you need to challenge global energy issues and the demands of climate change legislation. This route is ideal for someone working in energy and environmental regulation or policy, or those hoping to capitalise on employability opportunities by specialising in the field.
