Course content

A large share of all international disputes relate to energy in all its forms and throughout the value cycle. Companies, governments, and law firms need trusted, sophisticated advice to navigate such disputes successfully.

This course will give you the key theoretical and practical skills to launch a successful career in dispute settlement and dispute mediation. The settlement and avoidance of disputes relating to energy is an essential part of modern international energy law.

You will explore both public and private means of settling energy disputes, investor-state arbitration as well as the foundations of commercial arbitration and climate litigation.

You will also study how to avoid disputes through contract design and alternative means of managing disputes before you go to arbitration.
