Course content

Energy and mineral resources is an increasingly important and complex sector. Governments, firms and citizens grapple with the legal and regulatory framework for resources extraction, the business risks, energy costs, threats of resources scarcity, environmental impacts and carbon emissions and climate change issues. As the law, policy and practice in the energy and minerals industry and its institutional framework continue to evolve to address the competing interests in the industry, this is an exciting time to study in the field.

Our brand new LLM energy and natural resources offers a comparative and socio-legal approach to contemporary upstream and downstream oil and gas and minerals regulatory trends in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The programme offers you the opportunity to explore within a multidisciplinary and critical framework, the legal and regulatory and institutional aspects of the energy and minerals industry and the wider economic, business, environmental and technological issues that are fundamental to energy economies and market. It is aimed at law graduates or legal professionals and graduates of other disciplines seeking to work in legal practice, government, oil firms, international organisations, NGO or other professional roles in the mining and natural resources industry or market.
