The five day International Nuclear Law Essentials course provides participants with an understanding of the various interrelated legal issues regarding the safe, efficient and secure use of nuclear energy. This intensive and comprehensive course has been designed to accommodate the needs and interests of lawyers working in the public sector or the private sector, but will also be of interest to scientists, policymakers, and managers.
