This will include an introduction to international law relevant to the management of natural resources at international as well as regional and national level. Relevant issues in international energy law, such as sovereignty over natural resources, jurisdiction and international dispute settlement, will be discussed.

After a general introduction to international energy law, the course will focus on relevant international legal issues, including: climate and renewable energy law; the regulation of electricity markets in the EU and Australia; international energy trade and investment along with dispute settlement mechanisms; and finally petroleum agreements.
