Center for Law and Energy Resources in the Rockies|College of Law

Innovative Education and Research for Our Energy Future

The Center for Law and Energy Resources in the Rockies (CLERR) provides a focal point for the many energy and natural resources activities at the University of Wyoming College of Law and serves as a vehicle for outreach from the College of Law to the interested public. The interdisciplinary approach of the Center allows for the exploration of the legal, social, economic, technological, and political realities that affect energy and natural resources policy.

Through speakers, conferences, symposia, and similar activities, CLERR provides a platform for engaging in constructive and meaningful public policy debate and offers the opportunity for robust legal and policy research. The strong energy, environment, and natural resources curricula, coupled with a wealth of "real world" experiences and collaboration with cross-disciplinary University of Wyoming programs, such as the School of Energy Resources and the Helga Otto Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, provide CLERR the ability to prepare students to face the challenges of our energy future.
