Presented by the Institute for Energy Law, the Energy and Mineral Law Foundation and the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation.

The Oil and Gas Law Short Course presents the fundamentals of, and practical training in, important areas of oil and gas law, leasing, contracting, conveyancing, and regulation. The faculty consists of leading law professors and oil and gas practitioners.

Course materials will be presented through lectures, drafting exercises, and workshops by eleven leading law professors and oil and gas practitioners. Topics covered include exploration and production operations; ownership, capture, and correlative rights; conservation regulation; oil and gas leases – function and classification, defining what is granted, and duration of the grant; implied covenants; royalties; division orders; drilling contracts; pooling and unitization; local regulation; split estates; environmental regulations; common interested; joint operating agreements; farmout agreements; marketing; ethical issues, and taxation.

This course is essential for attorneys, landmen, paralegals, government employees, and others who are relatively inexperienced in the legal and/or land problems of the oil and gas industry. More experienced individuals often attend this course as a comprehensive review and update.

Enrollment is limited, and paid registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration fee includes substantial course materials, coffee breaks, and a hosted reception. Please note that course materials cannot be purchased separately. This course has sold out months in advance for the past decade.
