Oil and Gas - LLM/MSc


Course Description

This course is designed to respond to the demand for professionals in the vibrant oil and gas industry.

This course studies the combination of legal, environmental and economic considerations which lie at the heart of the oil and gas industry. Modules can be chosen from the School of Law, School of Economics, School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, Henley Business School and the School of Archaeology, Geography and Environmental Science. You will enhance your knowledge of the oil and gas industry and improve your employability not only for law firms active in these industries but also for in-house legal teams.

WHAT WILL YOU STUDY?

Modules include:
-Oil and Gas Contract Law
-Legal Issues in Oil and Gas
-Comparative Oil and Gas Policy
-Climate Change Policy and Governance

Please note that all modules are subject to change.

EMPLOYABILITY

A postgraduate law degree will open many doors not only in specialised areas of employment, such as law firms, European and intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), but also in academia (with further postgraduate study), the media (journalism and broadcasting), the civil service, and other branches of public service.

Graduates from our LLM course have gone on to work for various national and international law firms, as lawyers and as in-house legal counsel for large multinational companies in the UK and abroad, as well as international organisations and NGOs. A good proportion of our recent graduates are working with the European Union, the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Police (INTERPOL), amongst others.
