IPSK is an institute of excellence. Its an institution I joined and felt value for my money. They are very organised. I was able to appreciate more the concepts in oil & gas, petroleum taxation, project financing, aspects that have become critical and very important in my career as a lawyer.

When I got to learn about IPSK, I decided to enroll for a Masters program in 2016. My experience with IPSK was really fulfilling because the level of education was really first class. The lecturers were very highly qualified and extremely knowledgeable.

I am an LLM student at IPSK and I’m about to complete this course. I found it very interesting because Oil & Gas is an emerging industry which we need to have some capacity to appreciate. What interested me more was the area of commercial arbitration and alternative dispute resolution and therefore I thought this course was befitting.
