Taking into account the dynamic nature of the energy industry, this LLM aims to cover the practical knowledge and skills required for the legal management of oil and gas exploration and production activity. Taught within an internationally diverse learning environment with students and staff from a number of different countries, this course aims to adopts a global perspective, which recognises the increasing internationalisation of business. Course content aims to provide an understanding of both the structure of international business and the legal frameworks in which it operates. Our broad curriculum covers the control, through regulations and treaties, of oil and gas exploration and exploitation and matters of finance, including risk, investment, insurance and taxation. Highlighting theory in practice, we draw from real-life petroleum projects like Deepwater Horizon, Petrobras and the legal issues surrounding the Goliat field in the Barents Sea. Weâ??ll also examine the nature of international environmental law; what is being done by the sector in a more environmentally conscious age and how, for example, we can effectively protect the environment and meet the ambitions of the oil and gas industry in Arctic operations. In the final semester, you will be given the opportunity to complete a dissertation in an approved related topic, or to apply to undertake an internship with a host organisation within the energy industry. For their dissertation, past students have covered exciting and varied subject matter, such as the operations of the oil and gas industry in the Arctic, corporate social responsibility (CSR) in relation to local content issues and examining foreign direct investment and socioeconomic development. Why choose this course? By design, our course aims to take a broad approach into the law and its application within the energy sector. We use our professional contacts to help us keep abreast of relevant contemporary issues within this dynamic sector. For example, we have recently been examining the current trends in the energy mix, such as the shift away from our reliance on oil and the rise of natural gas as a bridge towards a future based on renewable energy. There will be opportunities to conduct collaborative research within the sector, which previously has included innovative ways in which carbon can be reduced in the atmosphere, the creation of more effective pipelines and the development of regulatory frameworks for renewable energy. You can also apply for an internship, which has enabled past students to work with BP, among other contacts within the energy sector. The School of Law benefits from tutors with a mix of industry and academic experience, as well as active researchers in a wide range of issues, including corporate social responsibility, the environment, the fundamentals of petroleum upstream contracts, legal risk management and a legal perspective on the economics of the industry. We also host a programme of international law research seminars, which have previously covered topics such as the operations of the energy industry in the Arctic, the issues surrounding local content and an examination of anti-corruption legislation for the energy.
