Energy Law

Energy law includes state, federal and international regulation of oil and gas, other energy forms, and environmental laws and regulations.  Knowledge of the energy laws of a particular foreign country is also included.

Energy lawyers may focus on litigation or compliance.  Litigation of oil and gas disputesmost often involves the meaning of a contract or conveyance. See David E. Pierce, 1 Tex. J. Oil Gas & Energy L. 1 2006.

It is worth noting that jobs in the energy sector in Texas are plentiful. The question for new law school graduates is whether this translates into more opportunity in law related jobs.

Note: Environmental law is the subject of another pathfinder.
