In a jurisdiction with so many energy law students, young practitioners, and AIPN Student Clubs, the Regional Executive Committee in Scotland is committed to involving and engaging young people in the association. In doing so, they have organized an interesting new webinar featuring student speakers from Scottish universities.

This webinar will include four student presentations focused on Nigerian issues and the energy transition in developing countries. Jamilu Ibn Mohammed will speak on the flaring situation in Nigeria, comparing it with the evolving UKCS regime. Ilias Kazeem will review the facts and holding of an international commercial arbitration decision rendered in London on the responsibility of the Nigerian state for the unilateral repudiation of a certain gas supply and processing agreement involving P&ID. Victor Azubike will consider the political and economic demands of the worldwide climate emergency and analyse how such imperatives may impact the economy of developing nations, especially those who are fossil fuel rich such as Nigeria. Solomon Nwaulikpe Obulor will consider the legal difficulties which developing countries may have in effectuating an energy transition away from fossil fuels.
