Fifth Annual Oil, Gas, and Energy Law Symposium to be held January 21–22, 2010

The 2010 Oil, Gas, and Energy Law Symposium is the Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law’s fifth annual CLE symposium. Speakers are leading academics and practitioners in oil, gas, and energy law. This year’s symposium promises to be an excellent forum for a dynamic and informative discussion about a wide range of current and future energy-related legal issues. This year’s symposium will be held Thursday and Friday, January 21–22, at the Thompson Conference Center at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs (across the street from the University of Texas School of Law).

Highlights of the 2010 Symposium include Chairman Victor Carrillo of the Railroad Commission of Texas, who will deliver a Texas energy sector update on Friday, January 22 at 3:30 pm. Other highlights include “A Survey of Oil and Gas Bankruptcy Issues,” by Rhett Campbell of Thompson & Knight LLP; “Carbon Sequestration: Legal Challenges and Opportunities,” by Michael Nasi of Jackson Walker LLP and Mary Mendoza of Haynes & Boone; “New Legal Framework for Oil Contracts in Mexico,” by Pedro Resendez of Gonzalez Calvillo in Mexico; and “How Our National Policy is Shaped,” by Justice Rick Strange of the Eleventh Court of Appeals of Texas in Eastland.

The 2009 Symposium included two days of presentations by nine speakers and a panel discussion. Over 120 people attended the 2009 Symposium, including nearly ninety attorneys. Other attendees included landmen, engineers, journal and society members, and University of Texas students. This was one of the largest symposiums hosted by a UT Law journal in recent years. Attendees earned up to eleven hours of CLE credit, including one hour in ethics.

The annual symposium is hosted by the Texas Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law and run by its student-members. The symposium is funded by the generous donations of TJOGEL’s sponsors.
