This week, launched a new Top 10 List of Energy Law LLM Programmes , which features both Groningen’s LLM in Energy and Climate Law and North Sea Energy Law Programme (NSELP). is a leading global directory of Master of Laws (LLM) programmes, and their list is based on various factors such as offered concentrations, existing rankings, international balance, and location. Staff at the Groningen Centre of Energy Law are delighted with this news and see it as recognition of their past and current activities, as well as encouragement for future initiatives.

The LLM in Energy and Climate Law at the University of Groningen is a one year, full-time specialization in the fields of energy and climate law. As the programme is taught in the middle of the 'Energy Valley' of the Netherlands, students learn from leading experts who both work in the energy law sector and teach in the programme. Applications are currently being accepted for studies beginning in September 2017, and further information about how to apply can be found here .

Created for energy law professionals, the North Sea Energy Law Programme LLM is a two-year part-time accredited master of laws jointly administered by the Universities of Groningen (The Netherlands), Oslo (Norway), Aberdeen (United Kingdom) and Copenhagen (Denmark). A key component of the programme involves spending two weeks at each of the four universities, allowing students to continue their full-time employment while studying. Enrollment in the June 2017 or November 2017 teaching periods is still possible, and applications for the next intake, which will take place from September 2018 - August 2020, is also open. More information can be found at the NSELP website .
