Dave Lawler, the CEO of BP U.S. Onshore, is the keynote speaker for the 2015 Landscape Discussion on Energy Law and Policy in the Rockies Conference at the University of Wyoming Oct. 30.

National, regional and local experts will discuss current energy topics, bridge the legal field with technology and policy, and identify opportunities for solutions in the public interest.

UW’s Center for Law and Energy Resources in the Rockies (CLERR), and the School of Energy Resources (SER) will host the conference Friday, Oct. 30, from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center.

The focus is on key energy issues in Wyoming, the Rocky Mountain region and the nation. Last year, the conference had more than 200 attendees, including many prominent leaders from industry, government, academia and the legal profession.

“Every year we strive to deliver a conference that covers key energy topics currently at play in the region, and this year’s topics certainly fit that bill,” says Temple Stoellinger, co-director of CLERR.

She says the conference is a good opportunity for participants of all professions, not just attorneys, who are interested in learning more about the energy law and policy topics at issue regionally and nationally.

Conference session topics that will be covered are: “Uncooperative Federalism: The Complexity of Shared Governance”; “Energy Transitions in a Low Price Environment: Mitigating Uncertainty and Risk”; and “Tightening Emission Standards: Impacts on Western Energy Projects.”

“I would like to encourage anyone with an interest in these topics to attend,” Stoellinger says. “We also would like to thank our generous sponsors and the School of Energy Resources who allow us to offer this dynamic and information-packed conference at a discounted rate.”

The conference cost is $50 to UW faculty and staff members and the public, and is free to UW students. Continuing Legal Education credit and CPL Recertification Credits are offered. For more information and to register for the conference, visit

CLERR provides a focal point for the many energy and natural resources activities at UW’s College of Law and serves as a vehicle for outreach from the College of Law to the interested public. The center’s interdisciplinary approach allows for the exploration of the legal, social, economic, technological and political realities that affect energy and natural resources policy.

SER was created at UW in 2006 to enhance the university's energy-related education, research and outreach. SER directs and integrates cutting-edge energy research and academic programs at UW, and bridges academics and industry through targeted outreach programs.
