Summary

Study energy and environmental law to an advanced level at the University of Aberdeen, the leading institution in energy law among the UK's top 5 Law Schools (The Complete University Guide 2019). This LLM degree programme seeks to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills to consult in energy and environmental matters. Our staff have expertise and specialisms in environmental and climate change law, as well as in energy law relating both to the fossil fuels sector and to low carbon energy including renewable s, nuclear and carbon capture and storage.

Law has a central role to play in enabling the shift to low carbon energy whilst maintaining energy security and the transition to environmentally sustainable economic development. The law in these areas undergoes frequent and extensive change as experience grows and we respond to the difficulties we are currently encountering.

Studying alongside legal experts in these areas, you will be immersed in the grounding concepts of energy and environmental law. With a unique choice of topical energy and environmental courses including ‘Corporate Environmental Liability’ to ‘Oil and Minerals for Good’, you will benefit from an advanced understanding and sharpened critical analysis across many key areas.

The programme will be of great interest to those who wish to equip themselves with the knowledge required to meet the challenges of the existing sectors of energy and environment, and the wish to play a pivotal role in the adaptation of current corporate policies during a time of great change. It may also appeal to practitioners who wish to acquire or update their legal knowledge in these fast moving areas.
