Course Introduction

This course examines upstream and downstream regulatory trends in oil, gas and minerals in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, placing this in the context of the broader economic, technological and environmental and sustainability issues that have an impact on the industry. You will learn how the law interacts with business, politics and finance in a sector that is under constant scrutiny. If you are a law graduate, legal professional, or graduate in another subject who works in ' or is hoping to work in ' the mining, energy or natural resource sector or a related field, this master's degree will be a wise choice. If you want to keep on working and earn while you learn, you can do so, as all of our classes take place in the evening and lectures are also made available as podcasts and posted online.
