Summary

Whatever your professional ambition, this 100% online programme provides the legal framework for careers in both energy and environmental law.

Energy is crucial to our social and economic lives, and yet we’re having to do more with less against depleting natural resources and mounting environmental concerns. Law is key to meeting these challenges head on.

Covering both energy management and environmental protection in one programme, this online LLM will help you answer today’s biggest challenges, while supporting careers in both fields. According to the UN, a shift to a greener economy is estimated to create 24 million new jobs globally by 2030 (United Nations 2019).

Taught by lecturers at the forefront of government legislation, at a standard you’d expect from a Russell Group university, you can be confident that anything you learn here is enriched with up-to-date research and career-focused content.

By adopting a transnational, multi-jurisdictional approach to energy ownership and environmental protection, our lecturers will prepare you to take on a host of local and global legal issues. It’s this that makes the programme perfect for students the world over.

Programme outcomes include:

- Insights into the issues around environmental protection

- How energy production depends on natural resources

- Problem-solving, evidential reasoning, negotiation and drafting skills

- Legal issues arising from deploying resources and generating energy

- Transactions underpinning energy production and supply
