International Nuclear Law Essentials

Next session: 16-20 March 2015

The five-day International Nuclear Law Essentials course has been designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the various interrelated legal issues relating to the safe, efficient and secure use of nuclear energy. This intensive course in international nuclear law has been designed to accommodate the needs and interests of lawyers working in either the public or the private sector but will be of interest also to scientists, engineers, policymakers, managers and other professionals working in the nuclear field.

The International Nuclear Law Essentials programme builds on the foundation of the annual International School of Nuclear Law that the Nuclear Energy Agency co-sponsors with the University of Montpellier 1 in France.

Programme

The 2015 programme will be conducted under the leadership of Paul Bowden, Partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus and Deringer LLP, London, United Kingdom.

Comprehensive lectures will be delivered by renowned specialists in nuclear law from international organisations, governments and private industry.

The following subjects will be covered during the five-day programme:

  • introduction to nuclear law;
  • nuclear safety;
  • nuclear regulatory regimes;
  • management of spent fuel and radioactive waste;
  • international radiological protection standards;
  • nuclear accident notification and assistance;
  • nuclear activities and environmental law;
  • liability, compensation and insurance for nuclear damage;
  • non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and international safeguards for nuclear materials;
  • nuclear security: physical protection, illicit trafficking and terrorism;
  • international trade in nuclear materials and equipment;
