Presented by the Institute for Energy Law (IEL), the Energy and Mineral Law Foundation (EMLF), American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) and The Foundation for Natural Resources and Energy Law (FNREL).

This is the only course of its kind – a one-week comprehensive, immersive oil and gas course, taught by oil and gas law professors from 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, see our upcoming courses. 

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 oil and gas taxation. 

Join us in Colorado for this unique course – a comprehensive educational opportunity along with the chance to network with others in the field! You can also network with those attending the Foundation’s Short Course on Federal Oil and Gas Leasing, Development, and Operations, which is being held concurrently with this course. 

This course is essential for attorneys, landmen, paralegals, government employees, and others who practice or work in the oil and gas industry or related fields. The course provides 31 hours of continuing legal education or AAPL credit, including 2 hours of ethics. The registration fee includes substantial course materials, coffee breaks, and a hosted reception. Course materials are made available exclusively for course registrants.
