Course summary

In energy terms, we live in times of great flux as the demand for energy continues to rise - particularly with newly developing nations now seeking new energy and wealth. Yet, the paradox is that this explosion of activity is happening precisely at the point in world history when we’re also trying to seriously reduce our carbon emissions and the effects of climate change. How to reconcile these two often opposing demands is where energy law becomes pivotal.

Our market-leading LLM Energy Law is designed to help you specialise and gain new insights in this challenging global arena. The programme is designed for students with a degree in law or in a related discipline who want to gain a greater knowledge of how energy law works and, crucially, how it is developing over time.

We focus on the key areas of the Energy sector from a policy and problem-solving perspective. Our core programme will examine the area from a comparative, international and inter-disciplinary perspective. The programme features a carefully chosen series of course options, including Oil and Gas, Renewables, Nuclear Energy and Carbon Capture and Storage. Alongside these subjects, we explore the principles of environmental regulation and corporate environmental liability for an in-depth understanding of the regulatory and competitive framework in which the industry operates.

The University of Aberdeen attracts world-class expertise in energy law. It is this unrivalled depth and breadth of experience that informs our outstanding level of teaching to give you the knowledge the world values. There are many opportunities at the University of Aberdeen to develop your knowledge, gain experience and build a competitive set of skills to enhance your employability. This is essential for your future career success. The Careers and Employability Service can help you to plan your career and support your choices throughout your time with us, from first to final year – and beyond.
