The LLM in Energy Law is a specialised program which aims to acquaint lawyers with the unique aspects of the energy sector whilst also providing non-lawyers, such as those working within the industry with an understanding of the relationship between the law and the energy sector.
UCLan is lucky to have amongst its staff, people who have a specialised knowledge of specific energy sectors, as well as those who have a much broader focus on environmental law issues and sustainable development. The LLM in Energy Law encompasses all of this expertise and offers two specialised pathways, one focussing on Oil and Gas, and the other on the Nuclear Industry.
The Oil and Gas route is delivered by way of distance learning. The Nuclear route is delivered predominantly by distance learning but the two core nuclear modules are delivered on campus. These sessions will take place over one week in Semester One and one week in Semester Two.
