Presented by the Institute for Energy Law, the Energy and Mineral Law Foundation, American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) and the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation.

This is the only course of its kind: a one-week comprehensive, immersive oil and gas course, the majority of which is taught by oil and gas law professors from law schools throughout the nation along with a select few practitioners who are experts in their fields. This course focuses primarily on the principles of U.S. laws and state regulations. For in-depth treatment of international oil and gas topics, see our upcoming courses.

New This Year: Recognizing the hardship of the pandemic and its impact on budgets, we are lowering rates for members and nonmembers by 10%, lowering rates for government and nonprofit employees by 20% to only $570, and offering the same low $570 rate for landman who are AAPL members, an incredible value for a premier week-long course.

Topics covered include exploration and production operations; ownership, capture, and correlative rights; oil and gas leases; royalties; conveyancing; division orders; pooling and unitization; conservation regulation; local regulation; participation agreements; joint operating agreements; drilling contracts; marketing agreements; environmental regulation; ethics; and new this year, federal oil and gas lease management and operations.

Join us in Colorado for the only course of its kind—a comprehensive educational opportunity along with the chance to network with others in the field!

This course is essential for attorneys, landmen, paralegals, government employees, and others who are relatively inexperienced in oil and gas law and land issues. More experienced individuals will benefit from a comprehensive review and update. The course provides 30.5 hours of continuing education credit, including two hours of ethics. The registration fee includes substantial course materials, coffee breaks, and a hosted reception. Please note that course materials cannot be purchased separately.
