The LLM/MSc in International Energy Law and Policy reflects the university’s interest in energy, the environment and climate change. As the fact that the programme can be taken as either an LLM or an MSc testifies, we welcome not only students with a legal background, but also students from other disciplines who have an interest in energy, and students who take taken the programme so far have come from a wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds. The focus on international energy law and policy has also meant that our student body is drawn from a wide variety of countries. Students will take modules drawn from a variety of disciplines. Graduates of the programme will be able to contribute to the greatest challenge facing the modern world, and should find their services much in demand.
Course Structure: The programme is 12 months in duration. Student will take 3 modules in the Autumn semester, and a further 3 modules in the Spring semester, before completing a dissertation on a subject of their choice in the Summer semester. The dissertation can potentially be undertaken as part of a practical project with an outside organisation as part of our Making the Most of Masters programme.
