Friday, August 9th, 2019

The Institute for Energy Law (IEL) has chosen 40 candidates to take part in its 2nd IEL Leadership Class. The class consists of attorneys, landmen, a professor, and an economic consultant from ten states and the District of Columbia. Their experience in their field ranges from three to fourteen years, with an average of eight years in practice. While many work in oil and gas litigation and transactions, several also have experience in areas such as environmental, toxic tort, construction, intellectual property, maritime, renewables, mining, power, and much more. Class members are dedicated to the communities in which they live and their pro bono efforts.

The class will meet in September for a mandatory retreat, which includes one and a half days of programming geared specifically towards young energy professionals. The class will continue through spring of 2020 with webinars, networking events, programming at IEL’s 71st Annual Oil and Gas Law Conference, and IEL’s 4th National Young Energy Professionals’ Law Conference in Austin, Texas.
