About

Energy and Environmental Law with Professional Skills at University of Aberdeen Master’s examines both energy and environmental law and the ways in which they directly impact each another. During your studies, you’ll gain a valuable insight into this fast-developing, highly topical industry, and form a solid basis to forge a successful career in this field.

Overview

Tapping into the growing need for lawyers with interdisciplinary knowledge, this programme will equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to operate effectively at the intersection of energy and environmental matters. Our programme produces lawyers that understand how environmental law affects the energy industry in its physical, technical, economic and political context.

As growing energy demand coincides with the need to move away from fossil fuel dependence, 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.

With a unique choice of energy and environment courses from Corporate Environmental Liability to Oil and Minerals for Good, you will benefit from an advanced understanding and sharpened critical analysis across many key areas.

You will acquire detailed and cutting edge knowledge about the current position of energy and environmental law and an understanding of how this is likely to change.

Energy and Environmental Law with Professional Skills, programme at University of Aberdeen covers matters of core interest for policy-makers, not only from an energy and environmental perspective but in all fields that provide the foundation for socio-economic functionality and corporate policy.

This programme was designed in consultation with a range of external contacts within the field as well as teaching staff from the University. This additional input ensures that the Master’s degree is aligned to industry competencies and needs. You will benefit from the programme’s specific focus on intensive professional skills courses, including a professional communication component.

The main difference with the LLM Energy and Environmental Law is the replacement of the dissertation with two intensive professional skills exercises.

Career

The LLM in Energy and Environmental Law is more than a qualification - it’s potentially a passport to greater opportunity for both practising and aspiring lawyers and to those who want to pursue a career within national or multi-national energy companies. It provides the skills needed for those who might want to work within governmental or non-governmental organisations. The programme may also serve to engage those seeking a more academic career – perhaps forming part of the journey towards gaining a PhD.

Whatever drives you and on whichever side of the energy and environment debate you stand, it’s clear that both energy and environment have to work together. There’s no plan B. The whole world will have to invest in making this happen. So if you want a sustainable career, like we all want a sustainable world, here’s the place to start.
