Swansea Announces New Oil and Gas Law LL.M.

New program starts in October 2015

Swansea University School of Law has announced it will offer a new LL.M. program in Oil and Gas Law starting in October 2015. This will be the school's sixth specialized LL.M. program.

According to the law school, the new program will offer "comprehensive curriculum, recognising that petroleum law encompasses not only raw exploitation of oil and gas but also many different aspects of law and business, including intellectual property rights in new technology, intricate joint venture contracts and compensation regimes for pollution liability."

Holman Fenwick Willan LLP, a UK-based shipping and commercial law firm, has agreed to award an annual prize to the LL.M. student with the best performance in the Oil and Gas program.

Like with all of Swansea LL.M. programs, graduates in the LL.M. in Oil & Gas Law who have an undergraduate law degree from a common law jurisdiction, or who otherwise satisfy the New York bar educational requirements, are offered an opportunity to qualify for practice in the United States. Such graduates can study for the New York bar qualification at Swansea with Barbri International Ltd., provider of US bar qualification courses, and in addition, will receive a discount of £500 from the normal tuition fee.
