Potential Energy in Magnetic field

  1. We were told that potential energy of a closed loop coil in magnetic field is -M.B.
    where M is the Magnetic moment vector and B is the Magnetic field vector.
    On the other hand we were also taught that magnetic force is a NON CONSERVATIVE force. So how is the Potential Defined for non conservative forces..?
