CEPMLP has £1,000 essay competition for oil and gas law students

The Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy (CEPMLP) at the University of Dundee is running its annual essay competition on oil and gas law – the Steve Weston Prize. This competition is administered by The Energy, Petroleum, Mineral and Natural Resources Law and Policy Education Trust, and honours the memory of Steve Weston, a leading practitioner of oil and gas law. It has a prize fund of up to £1,000.

The Steve Weston Prize is open to all and awarded to the author or authors of an outstanding essay on a preselected topic – with this year’s topic being  "The European Parliament in its resolution 2015/2352 of 1st December 2016, called on the Commission to consider the establishment of a European legislative compensation mechanism for offshore accidents.  Is such a mechanism necessary or desirable and, if so, is the European Parliament right to suggest that it should cover not only bodily injury and property damage but also pure economic loss. What would constitute pure economic loss in this context?"

Entries should be no more than 3,000 words in length and are to be submitted electronically to cepmlp-trust@dundee.ac.uk by Tuesday 19th December 2017.

The Steve Weston Prize is funded by BP, Shell, Herbert Smith, CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang, Linklaters and Wragges – find out more.
