Please see the below assessment handbook wording. You may choose between A or B for the assessment, which must NOT exceed more than 4,000 words.
The module is assessed by a single piece of work which challenges the student to reframe a significant element of relevant legislative instruments and the common law to provide a commentary justifying the approach they have chosen to adopt. Supplementary drafted materials will also be required. Formative feedback will come from peer/tutor review of draft legal materials.
The legislative draft, together with the rationale, critique and response to peer feedback will be graded (4,000).
You may choose between A or B for your summative assessment, which must not exceed more than 4,000 words.
– Assessment A
You work for the United Nations and have been asked to act as an intermediary between the dispute between China and Japan on the hydrocarbon resources situated in the East China Sea. Applying your knowledge of international law and regulations, critically evaluate how you, as an intermediary, may help China and Japan reach an agreement to share the licensing of blocks within the East China Sea. You will then evaluate how any licensing model and joint operating agreements entered into by any domestic or international oil companies may prove beneficial to both China and Japan, in relation to employment prospects for the citizens of both states and the tax benefits associated with successful exploration and extraction of hydrocarbon deposits.
– Assessment B
Decommissioning is a very intensive and expensive part of dealing with the after effects of exhausted hydrocarbon fields, within the continental shelf. Using your understanding of both European, International and Human Rights legislation, critically evaluate the various impact such legislation and customary norms, may have on both small and large oil companies in the decommissioning process and how host states may benefit from responsible decommissioning by the oil or gas company.
