Events and Lectures

Our students, alumni and members participate in a wide range of external lectures and events that provide different and diverse perspectives on the major energy issues.

Energy Fundamentals course

Each year we offer an Energy Fundamentals course. This course is offered to both Postgraduates and PhD students as well as lawyers from members of the Institute and their associates. It features lectures from leading academics and practitioners in energy law to provide a comprehensive overview of the key market drivers. It is popular with students as it is a useful preparation for many of the energy modules.
