If you are not an IEL member (or an employee of one of IEL’s Sustaining or Supporting Members), but would like access to the digital library, we offer a year-long subscription to the library for $100. Clicking the link below will take you to a library of papers, where you can search either by the category headings at the top of the page, or by keyword in the search box. Papers may be useful for self-study CLE purposes, but do not qualify as participatory CLE.

The Oil and Gas Reporter

The Oil and Gas Reporter was published from 1952-2017.  It was a loose leaf, regularly updated collection of U.S. cases of relevance to the oil and gas practitioner, with commentary from members of the IEL’s Board of Editors, who were leading scholars and practitioners of national reputation.  The Reporter served as a preeminent source of information for not only oil and gas practitioners, but also jurists who decide oil and gas cases.

In 2018, the successor of this publication, IEL’s E-Report will begin. 

Proceedings of the Institute on Oil & Gas Law

The Proceedings are published annually and is a collection of the papers presented at the Annual Oil & Gas Conference that year.
