University of Aberdeen: Energy Law with Dissertation LLM
|Institution||University of Aberdeen View institution profile|
|Department||School of Law|
Led by renowned academics operating at the heart of Energy Law globally, this uniquely positioned Master's programme will provide you with a strong, reputable foundation of knowledge for your career and enable you to stand out in an increasingly topical industry.
In energy terms, we live in times of great flux as the demand for energy continues to rise - particularly with newly developing nations now seeking new energy and wealth. Yet, the paradox is that this explosion of activity is happening precisely at the point in world history when we’re also trying to seriously reduce our carbon emissions and the effects of climate change. How to reconcile these two often opposing demands is where energy law becomes pivotal.
Our market-leading LLM Energy Law is designed to help you specialise and gain new insights in this challenging global arena. The programme is designed for students with a degree in law or in a related discipline who want to gain a greater knowledge of how energy law works and, crucially, how it is developing over time.
We focus on the key areas of the Energy sector from a policy and problem-solving perspective. Our core programme will examine the area from a comparative, international and inter-disciplinary perspective. The programme features a carefully chosen series of course options, including Oil and Gas, Renewable s, Nuclear Energy and Carbon Capture and Storage. Alongside these subjects, we explore the principles of environmental regulation and corporate environmental liability for an in-depth understanding of the regulatory and competitive framework in which the industry operates.
There are various sources of funding to support you during your period of study. We have a number of scholarships and bursaries available to our students, and external sources of funding available.

Normally, a 2.1 honours degree (or equivalent) in Law will be required to be accepted onto this programme. Relevant practical experience in a related field will also be beneficial.
Assessment is based on a combination of coursework during the semester and an examination at the end of the relevant semester. In addition, students must complete research skills course and a dissertation on a topic within the specialism. All full time students, both those who begin in January as well as those who begin in September, commence work on the dissertation in May, with a final submission date in the beginning of August each year.
Teaching is organised on a modular basis. There are two eleven-week semesters. Examinations are held at the end of each semester, in December and May. The dissertation is submitted in August. Students can join either in September or January.
The variety of assessments in the programme ensures that students apply theory to practical situations in order to become expert at being able to analyse and reason issues thoroughly.
