UW Plans Legal Symposia on Key Energy Issues

May 5, 2015

University of Wyoming legal and business experts will discuss key energy issues in a series of symposia across Wyoming and in Denver during May and June.

The UW Energy Law CLE Summer Roadshow is designed to provide continuing legal education for attorneys and landmen, but others are welcome to attend the events as well. The program is a joint initiative among the UW School of Energy Resources (SER), the UW Colleges of Law and Business, and the Center for Law and Energy Resources in the Rockies at UW.

The sessions will cover the potential impacts of federal protections for sage grouse on industry; the Bureau of Land Management’s hydraulic fracturing rule; the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan; and the evolution of surface access rights on federal split estates. The sessions also will include a discussion on ethical issues raised by extractive industries, and anticipated impacts of commodity price changes.

Presenters include Temple Stoellinger, co-director of the Center for Law and Energy Resources in the Rockies and adjunct professor in UW’s Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources; Tara Righetti, SER assistant professor in the College of Law; Tim Mazur, the College of Business’s Bill Daniels Distinguished Professor of Business Ethics; and John Mittelstaedt, interim dean of the College of Business and professor of marketing.

The sessions are free, but registration is encouraged. To register or learn more, go online to
