LLM Energy and Natural Resources Law


Course Description

Energy is the largest and one of the most dynamic industry sectors. It raises many challenges both politically and technically, from traditional exploration and production of fossil fuels to more recent mining extraction methods (hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking'), renewables and environmental protection. Queen Mary is only one of a few universities in the world to offer an LLM in Energy and Natural Resources Law and this programme builds upon well-established areas at Queen Mary, such as Commercial Law, Dispute Resolution, Environmental Law and Regulation.

All these constituent elements of Energy and Natural Resources law are approached through a comparative and international lens and prepare students to enter practice as regulators, lawyers in private practice of public sector lawyers. You will also benefit from the current research, consultancy work and events undertaken and held by the Energy and Natural Resources Law Institute (ENRLI) at Queen Mary.

Many of the modules will be co-taught by practitioners and leading industry figures so you will benefit from practical real life insights into the industry. You will also be able to attend a series of General Counsel lectures, giving you a chance to network with speakers from organisations such as Exxon, British Gas, Shell and EDF.

This programme will:

Examine the area from a comparative, international and inter-disciplinary perspective.
Focus on both regulatory and transactional matters but also issues of policy.
Give you access to leading experts in the field who provide an accurate and measured assessment of key pervasive and emerging issues.
Approach the energy and natural resources law academically, from policy and a problem-solving perspective.
Provide you with unique internship and networking opportunities within the industry.
