Law Schools and Students
Law school members of the IEL have one representative on the IEL’s Advisory Board, who is entitled to attend the Annual Oil & Gas Conference and the various Advisory Board events there free of charge. The Advisory Board representative can also nominate two students to attend each of IEL’s programs throughout the year free of registration fees.
Each year, the IEL organizes a special conference for law schools and law students, held on the campus of one of its members. The first conference was hosted by the University of Tulsa in March, 2013, and the second will take place at the LSU Law Center in April, 2014.
Law students are encouraged to attend all IEL conferences. If your school is an IEL law school member, it can nominate two students to attend any IEL program free of tuition fees (unfortunately we cannot offer travel or accommodation expenses), and if you are nominated you will be entitled to all the privileges of a conference delegate such as meals, written materials, and access to online materials.
In addition, when space permits, any law student can attend any IEL program free of charge “on audit”, but in that case will not be entitled to delegate privileges.
