On 10 July 2017 Dr. Ruven Fleming, Assistant Professor in Energy Law, gave a lecture titled `Introduction to Energy Law´ in Almaty, Kazakhstan. He was invited by KIMEP University, a western-style University, located in the former capital of the country Almaty. Kazakhstan witnessed a natural resources boom over the last 20 years and is currently starting to diversify its energy industry.
Dr. Fleming introduced the discipline of Energy Law to students at KIMEP by highlighting the main aspects of the subject. His lecture span from International Energy Law and the particular European perspective on Energy Law over Energy Investment and Trade Law to the regulation of Renewables. He focussed particularly on the interaction between energy and climate law to provide an outlook on future trends in energy regulation.
At the end of the lecture the Dean of the Law Faculty at KIMEP University, Professor Joseph Luke, encouraged students to pursue a career in energy law. He portrayed the area as an emerging and very dynamic field of law that requires a sophisticated set of tools and specialized knowledge. Finally he thanked Dr. Fleming for the lecture and presented him with a certificate of appreciation.
