Course content

The Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy (CEPMLP) is one of the most successful academic institutions in the UK and the EU. It is the principal and international institution of education in, and for the global energy and resources economy with staff from all over the world.

At CEPMLP we have a well-established, innovative, and rigorous PhD programme. Doctoral research is part and parcel of overall Centre research and training activities, and most PhD research involves different aspects of the natural resources industry (energy, petroleum, and mining) from economic, legal-regulatory, and often multidisciplinary perspectives. Reflecting the major concerns of our times, there is also growing research interest in the law and policy of renewable energy and climate change issues.
