Tulsa University Law - LLM in Energy & Natural Resources Law

The University of Tulsa College of Law establishes
LL.M. in Energy and Natural Resources Law
Tulsa, Oklahoma - The University of Tulsa College of Law establishes the newest of three LL.M. programs now offered. The program prepares leaders to engage in the national and international debate over how to meet the world’s growing energy demands, respond to climate change concerns, and mediate conflicts over access to important natural resources such as water. The College of Law has broadened its venerable Sustainable Energy and Resources Law (SERL) Program to equip foreign and domestic lawyers for practice at the intersections where demands for affordable, reliable supplies of energy meet the need for a safe, clean environment and preserving vital natural resources.

"The LL.M. in Energy and Natural Resources Law program is a significant part of TU Law’s educational mission," explains Janet Levit, Dean and Dean John Rogers Endowed Chair of TU Law. "The program incorporates our unique expertise, enhancing our graduate programs to reach new strategic markets. Our LL.M. students will gain a superior legal education from one of the world’s leading energy, environmental and natural resources law institutions. Historically, TU Law graduates have served in high positions in energy sector entities such as Shell US, Noble Energy, and the International Atomic Energy Agency."

Professor Gary Allison, Director of the SERL Program, notes, "The LL.M. in Energy and Natural Resources Law program will give foreign and domestic lawyers the opportunity to enter the burgeoning energy law practice through specialized training in energy, environmental and natural resources law that they could not receive while earning their first JD or equivalent degree."

Enrollment is now open through July. The nine month degree program will begin each year in August.
