Energy Law

The programme 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 programme encompasses all of this expertise and offers two specialised pathways, one focussing on oil and gas, and the other on the nuclear industry. The course is delivered in a flexible way to accommodate those in full time employment. Teaching takes place online and during three block-sessions spaced throughout the academic year.
