IEL Announces New Law School Symposium

On Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2, 2013, the IEL will be hosting the first Hartrick Symposium in conjunction with one of its law school members, the University of Tulsa College of Law. The Hartrick Symposium will become an annual event in the IEL’s calendar, and will take place at a different law school each year.

The first symposium is entitled Career Paths for Young Attorneys in the Energy Sector, and is aimed at law students, law graduates and young lawyers who are interested in the possible careers for a lawyer who wants to specialize in energy.

The program begins with a field trip on Friday afternoon to see Explorer Pipeline’s Tulsa facilities, Explorer’s Glenpool Tank Farm, and Holly Frontier Corporation’s Tulsa Refinery. Friday continues with an evening reception honoring Joe Morris, a former Dean of the Tulsa College of Law and former Chair of the IEL.

Saturday’s program focuses on some of the different careers open to an energy lawyer: oil and gas attorney, landman, international negotiator, regulatory attorney, and compliance professional, to name but a few, and will conclude with a panel of experts explaining the employer’s perspective on recruitment of young law graduates.

The symposium is free to students, and IEL law school members are entitled to a travel subsidy to assist with student travel to Tulsa.
