This is a multi-disciplinary distance learning programme designed to address the cross-border elements of the oil and gas industry and respond to the demand for highly qualified professionals in the sector. The modules have been designed to be relevant to you if you work in, or wish to embark on a career within the national and international oil, gas and energy industries and the renewable energy sector.

More about this course

This is a stimulating and rewarding course designed for individuals who currently work in the international oil, gas and energy industries or who wish to embark on careers in that industry. It is especially beneficial for private practice lawyers in oil, gas and energy law (or lawyers hoping to specialise in these areas).

The course is also ideal for in-house lawyers from the upstream and downstream oil, gas and energy sectors or non-legal professionals working in the oil, gas and energy sectors, in particular:
-Finance
-Compliance
-Business development
-Environmental positions
-Licensing
-Operations
-Procurement
-Project managers
-Taxation
-Contract managers
-Distribution
-Company secretaries
-Renewables

This distance learning course is taught in partnership with Informa via their online learning platform. It focusses on the practical aspects of oil and gas law and is set in the broader context of contemporary energy regulation, law and policy. It seeks to develop a deep understanding of how to resolve the challenges posed by national authorities to oil, gas and energy production.

Those working in the oil and gas sectors increasingly want and need to have an understanding of the legal principles that underpin many of their activities, from the drafting of basic contracts to the intricacies, controversies and complexities of the international regimes covering such matters as oil pollution from ships and the delimitation of continental shelf reserves between adjacent and opposite states.

This course seeks to introduce you to the fundamental precepts of English commercial law; to the institutional legal framework of the oil and gas economies; to contracts; regulations and treaties relating to oil and gas exploration and exploitation (including those relating to environmental issues); and to matters of finance, including investment, insurance and taxation.

The course provides a programme of postgraduate study which will develop your academic knowledge and awareness of issues in international oil, gas and energy law and increase your understanding of the legal dimensions to activities taking place in the oil, gas and energy fields and the extent to which they might give rise to legal issues. As well as deepening your understanding of the law in these areas, our focus throughout the programme is on the practical application of the law. The programme benefits from teaching by tutors with strong relevant backgrounds in the academic world and in legal practice with a number practising as barristers or solicitors.

This LLM top up will consist of one research based module followed by a dissertation of between 12,000-15,000 words.

The future exploration and development of Oil and Gas will increasingly move towards offshore drilling and production. This will involve drilling and production rigs, vessels and infrastructure. Read more
The future exploration and development of Oil and Gas will increasingly move towards offshore drilling and production. This will involve drilling and production rigs, vessels and infrastructure.

Offshore Oil and Gas Engineering activity is increasing all around the world and graduates from this course will have a particular focus on operations in the ocean, processing, pipelines, subsea systems, materials and corrosion. This course is particularly designed for those wishing to move into the Oil and Gas Industry who may not have previous detailed oil and gas knowledge or industry experience.

Another related complementary course is our MSc Oil and Gas Engineering which has more focus in stage 2 on well completions, project management, risk and the environment. An advantage of these two courses is that they are designed to have the same first four stage 1 modules introducing the Oil and Gas industry so that students, having gained more understanding of the industry, can compare the courses and swap between courses during stage 1, as they decide which course they would prefer to follow in stage 2. This flexible approach offers students the advantage of more choice during their study.

Each module comprises up to 52 hours of lectures and tutorials. Significant additional private study is expected during each module.
