We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The course builds upon our considerable expertise in this area and has been designed in response to the growing significance of legal issues surrounding the oil, gas and mining industry.
It will provide you with the foundations for a future career or further postgraduate (MPhil/PhD) study in most aspects of the regulatory and commercial world, as they relate to the international energy industry, with a specific focus on the petroleum and mining sectors of this burgeoning area of economic activity.

A good law degree, 2.2 or above.
Applicants whose first degree is not Law will be required to provide evidence of commitment to the LLM subject that they wish to study.
Applicants from other disciplines will be welcomed in appropriate circumstances, particularly if they have experience in the area, even if not as lawyers.
We specify these minimum entry requirements, but we will assess you individually on your ability to benefit from the course. We sometimes offer places on the basis of non-standard entry qualifications, and industrial or professional experience.

The curriculum of my chosen LLM programme covers a blend of legal and regulatory frameworks which underpin the oil, gas and mining industry. I believe the knowledge I gain this year will equip me with relevant legal expertise on the environmental and investment aspects of the extractive industry, so I will be able to assist the Malawian government in developing efficient fiscal systems in order to capture the dire needed foreign currency whilst ensuring accountability and transparency.
It has been a valuable learning experience to study in a law school with lecturers who are dedicated to their fields and who are keen to impart their knowledge to students in order for them to apply theory to realistic scenarios.
As a result of my postgraduate study my career plans have changed. I would now like to complete doctoral research upon the completion of my LLM, and after obtaining a PhD, I would like to return to my home country and hold a faculty position in a university in Malawi.
