Mormann Named Stegner Center Young Scholar

October 3, 2017

Chosen for his scholarship and professional service, the S.J. Quinney College of Law at The University of Utah has named Felix Mormann its 2017 Stegner Center Young Scholar.

Mormann is an Associate Professor of Law with Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth.

On Nov. 1, he will present the Stegner Young Scholar lecture on Utah Law’s campus, focusing on the topic of Clean Energy Equity.

The talk will draw on Mormann’s chief research interests, exploring the intersection of law and innovation in the context of energy law and policy.

“I feel extremely honored to be selected as the Stegner Center’s Young Scholar for 2017, following in the footsteps of thought leaders whose work has shaped the fields of environmental and energy law,” Mormann said. “The Stegner Lecture offers the perfect platform to present my work on the pressing equity challenges posed by the ongoing transition to a more sustainable energy future. On a personal level, Wallace Stegner’s “Angle of Repose” is one of my all-time favorite books making it even more special to be giving a lecture in his honor.”

The associated paper also will be published in the Utah Law Review.

In addition to his role with Texas A&M Law, Mormann serves as Faculty Fellow at Stanford University’s Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance.

He is an internationally trained corporate and energy lawyer, known for producing empirically informed research based on the premise that environmentally sustainable energy solutions require an economically sustainable policy landscape to leverage necessary investment.

Mormann currently investigates domestic and international regulation and policy related to clean-energy technologies, and is often called upon to advise federal policymakers on clean energy and energy efficiency.
