Dive deep beneath the surface to explore the latest "hot" topics in the energy sector. Practitioners, academics, regulators, and other stakeholders will share their views​ in panels covering hydrocarbons, renewables, and electricity. The symposium will also feature a special interdisciplinary panel and a career panel for students interested in pursuing a career in energy law.

The annual ​symposium, hosted by the School of Law’s Energy, Environmental, and Natural Resources Systems (EENRS) Law Program, brings together thought-leading academics, industry professionals, ​municipal officials and legal practitioners for an in-depth discussion of current and future trends in energy law. The ​symposium continues to expand in size and scope thanks to the School of Law’s diverse and forward-thinking faculty, as well as the ​school’s dedicated partners. Specifically, the Program gratefully acknowledges financial support from XTO Energy and Freeman Mills PC.

We are pleased to offer interested Texas-licensed practitioners up to ​7.50 credits of continuing legal education (CLE)*.

Registration options include one or two day and CLE credit. Current ​students, ​faculty, and ​staff from all educational institutions are welcome to attend the Symposium at no charge, and should be ready to present their academic identification at the registration table upon arrival at the Symposium. All attendees (fee-paying & free) must register.
