Course Summary

The LLM in Oil and Gas Law with Professional Skills will help you build your practical expertise and gain valuable contacts that will help advance your legal career. Upon completing our Master’s programme, you will have the intellectual, critical and practical skills required to practice as a trained professional in this field.

You will be immersed in the grounding concepts of current oil and gas law and will gain the practical education required for the legal management of oil & gas exploration and production activity.

Our teaching promotes the kind of contextual thinking that enables you to gain a deeper, more forward-thinking understanding about the industry and how the law works around it. You will have the opportunity to study topics such as Oil and Gas Law Skills: Exploration and Production, Contracting in Hydrocarbon Operations and Downstream Energy Law.

The flagship feature of our LLM is the professional skills modules. These curricular innovations help meet the demands for more hands-on skills and will prepare you for the reality of legal practice. You will undertake additional classes based on simulated practical exercises and submit a portfolio of works, bringing general principles into direct and immediate application.

We will encourage you to think beyond the immediate interest by seeking intelligent solutions that will lead to sustainable energy supplies. You will explore the many different needs of the energy industry and various different viewpoints, including the states discovering the oil or gas and the industry experts drilling for it.

The LLM Oil and Gas Law with Professional Skills provides an intellectual and practical programme that focuses on testing your skills. We also offer an LLM Oil and Gas Law with Dissertation that offers a more theoretical and academic programme.

Over the years, graduates of the LLM Oil and Gas Law have successfully gone on to enjoy careers in this dynamic and fascinating area of law.

These range from positions with the oil and gas companies, with international law firms servicing the industry and also with government ministries.

Equally, some of our students choose to use the programme as a step towards their PhD, and beyond that, to work in the academic world.
