LSU to Host Second IEL Law School Careers Symposium

After the very successful launch of the IEL’s Hartrick Symposium Career Paths for Young Attorneys in the Energy Sector at the University of Tulsa College of Law in 2013, it has been agreed that the second symposium will be held at another IEL member law school, the Louisiana State University Law Center, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Friday and Saturday, April 4 and 5, 2014.

Once again following a career theme for new law graduates and young attorneys interested in working in the energy industries, symposium topics will include in-house legal work, working as a landman, becoming a negotiator, and regulatory and compliance opportunities, all addressed by senior industry professionals donating part of their weekend to helping new graduates.  A panel of employer experts will conclude the symposium by addressing key skill sets necessary for success, with particular consideration being given to the vast majority of graduates who happen not to be in the top 10% of their class.  More details can be found by clicking here.

Enhanced informal networking opportunities will be available during the symposium where attendees will be able to talk with the industry participants one-to-one or in small groups.

Attendance is free for law students and professors, and only $25 for lawyers licensed for less than six years.
