In a world driven by the quest and greed of oil many people especially in the third world countries do not pay attention to the vast solid minerals buried within but only on oil. I am in search of an institution offering LLM in mining law or mineral law. This encompasses all forms of solid mineral mining and even oil exploration as well (I believe)

That's surely interesting and innovative. Maybe Australia has some?

Try Dundee CEPMLP, they have a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Mineral Law and Policy:

Apparently the LLM GUide page is outdated, if you look at www.dundee.ac.uk/law/llm/llm_programmes.htm the Mineral Law program is gone

Hi hawkme, That course is actually still offered.

It's provided by the CEPMLP (Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy), which is not a part of Dundee law school:

www.dundee.ac.uk/cepmlp/academic/

The CEPMLP is Dundee's graduate school in the field of international business transactions and natural resources and energy law and policy.

That's why you find two separate listings for Dundee on this website:

Hi!

Yes, I can see that. However, that's a big surprise, as LLMs are always (well, almost always as I've just found out) granted by law schools directly.

What's even more intriguing is that CEPMLP not only awards LLMs, but also MBAs :)

I guesss students enrolled in CEPMLP programs will get their degree from the law school, but I couldn't find that information on the website.

Universities usually create separate institutes to strengthen their profile in a specific subject area. There are some other "independent" institutes offering LLM programs, e.g. the MIPLC in Germany (Intellectual Property) or the IHEID (International and Development Studies) in Switzerland:

Right you are :) I thought it was the exception, but it seems there are other cases, too
