The growing pressure on natural resources has prompted an evaluation of traditional forms of energy, as well as a search for new and renewable energy forms. Energy production, distribution and use have become a priority area for governments, businesses and non-governmental organisations across the world. With a growing demand for employees with specialised legal knowledge in energy law and policy, we’ve designed this course specifically to meet that need.

On this Masters course, you’ll explore the intersections between energy, environment, investment and regulation. Expert staff have come together to provide graduates with an in-depth understanding of energy law and policy, as well as of key areas of investment law, environmental policy, energy management and economics.

You’ll be taught by expert staff in law, economics, politics and environmental science. They’ll give you clear insight into the relevant legal, political and economic issues related to energy law at the national, regional and international level. There’s also an opportunity for a work-based dissertation.

It’s important to us that our students have the opportunity to engage with energy law and policy as it continues to evolve, which is why we encourage students to attend suitable conferences. For example, in 2016/17 LLM students attended an energy policy conference to hear more about energy policy and market reform from the government, regulators and industry.
