About the Course


The last 15 to 20 years the energy exploration activity has undergone significant changes. Energy law, understood as the study of legal relations involving the allocation of rights and obligations relating to the exploitation of energy resources in its various forms, emerges from this process as an autonomous discipline, related to
various other areas of law. Deepening the analysis of the discipline thus becomes a necessity for professionals in the field.

The Postgraduate LLM in Energy Law and Business in the Electricity Sector aims to deepen the study of the various aspects related to the emerging area of Energy Law, including the relationship of the discipline with administrative, environmental, tax, international and human rights law, among others. The aim is to develop skills to understand the activity from a comprehensive legal perspective and in a global context.

The courses are offered in face-to-face (hybrid) and online (live) modality. Students in the face-to-face modality will follow the classes in CEDIN's facilities and students in the online modality will follow the classes live. Both students will be able to attend classes whenever and wherever they wish. There will be times when access will be online for both modalities in specific, for interactive meetings.
