    Course Summary

    This program prepares you to build your practice on the specialty of hydrocarbon energy supply, or to join any of the businesses or regulatory bodies working in the energy industry. There is more to the topic of energy law than the exploration and exploitation of resources, though. It touches upon the intellectual property rights of new technologies, pollution liability and compensation, and even the intricacies of contract law supporting joint ventures.

    Swansea’s LLM in Oil, Gas and Renewable Energy Law gives you the specialised expertise you’ll need to work in this dynamic set of industries. You’ll become familiar with the principles of international law which makes the global oil trade possible, as well as the complexities forming around exciting new renewable energy sources.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning And Teaching

    Swansea adheres to the SALT Professional Development Framework for Learning and Teaching. In essence, the SALT Framework ensures that staff receive the support they need to provide the best quality teaching. In this case, that means teaching modules in smaller, more interactive classes in a visual learning environment. Assessment is 50% by marked coursework and 50% by end of term examination.

    Career Possibilities

    This program is designed with employability in mind. To that end, Swansea University runs several programs directly related to career development. These include networking events, a series of visits to large practices in London, an annual LLM Careers fair, frequent guest lectures from practicing professionals, moot courts and competitions, as well as a team of dedicated Employability Officers who are available to give advice as needed.
