About

An advanced curriculum on energy law, from wellhead to burner tip, designed and structured specifically for legal professionals in the energy sector. The Master in North Sea Energy Law at University of Oslo is a part-time LL.M offered jointly by the Universities of Groningen (the Netherlands), Oslo (Norway), Aberdeen (United Kingdom) and Copenhagen (Denmark).

Overview

Energy law is a relatively new discipline and governs the entire energy chain. It includes all legislation and regulation applying to the production, transmission and supply of energy, the promotion of renewable energy sources as well as the need to secure energy supply.

The energy sector and its legal framework are heavily impacted by ongoing processes such as liberalization, globalization and climate change. The “North Sea Energy Law Programme” (NSELP) aims to address these changes and to provide its students with adequate expertise of all relevant aspects of energy law.

The Master in North Sea Energy Law at University of Oslo will have strong connections with both the energy sector (industries and governments) and the faculties of law and energy law of the partner universities. It aspires to set a standard for the discipline of energy law within the broader setting of the North Sea area.
