In a master's unlike any other, examine both energy and environmental law - a pairing that reflects the significant overlap in these related topics - at Aberdeen, the leading institution in energy law among the UK's top Law Schools. 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. The programme 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.
