Oil and Gas Law

This course studies the combination of legal, environmental and economic considerations which lie at the heart of the oil and gas industry. Modules can be chosen from the School of Law, School of Economics, School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, Henley Business School and the School of Archaeology, Geography and Environmental Science. You will enhance your knowledge of the oil and gas industry and improve your employability not only for law firms active in these industries but also for in-house legal teams.

A postgraduate law degree will open many doors not only in specialised areas of employment, such as law firms, European and intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), but also in academia (with further postgraduate study), the media (journalism and broadcasting), the civil service, and other branches of public service.
