Texas Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law Announces Release of Debut Issue

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law is publishing its debut issue. To celebrate the journal will be hosting a day of events on Thurs., April 20.

“With the University’s history so linked to oil and gas, it is altogether fitting that the nation’s premiere student-edited energy law journal should be produced by our law students,” noted UT Law Interim Dean Steven Goode. “The founding members of the journal deserve our great thanks and admiration for their remarkable display of initiative in launching this journal.”

In recognition of this accomplishment, the Journal is hosting a “Launch Party” at Stubb’s BBQ, 801 Red River, which will include a seated dinner and drinks from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Those attending the event will include journal staff, area attorneys, law school administration, journal contributors, and the journal’s advisory board.

In addition, free Amy’s Ice Cream will be provided for current law students during the day on April 20. Interested students will be given the opportunity to get information regarding joining the journal staff for the upcoming year. These events are possible due to generous sponsorship from Bracewell & Giuliani LLP and Hughes & Luce LLP.

The debut issue of the journal will include three articles, a student note, and recent developments in the oil, gas, and energy industry. The first issue of the journal will arrive in subscribers’ mailboxes by the end of April. Anyone interested in subscribing may order online at

The Texas Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law (TJOGEL) is the newest journal at the University of Texas School of Law, and the only student-edited journal in the country focused on promoting scholarship in the energy legal field. TJOGEL was founded in the summer of 2005 and currently has a full staff of 64 UT Law students.
