Jacqueline Lang Weaver is
the A.A. White Professor of Law at the University of Houston. Professor
Weaver is an alumna of the Law Center, having graduated magna cum
laude in 1975 after working as an energy economist. In 1977, she joined
the faculty of the Law Center and has expertise in the areas of oil and
gas, energy law and policy, international energy, environmental and natural
resources law. Professor Weaver's reputation as an outstanding teacher
is reflected in her four teaching excellence awards. She is a co-author
of the nationally used casebook titled Energy, Economics and the Environment,
a book whose very title reflects the themes pursued in the EELPJ.
She has also authored articles on energy markets, sustainable development
in the international energy industry, comparative unitization laws
in energy-producing nations, and on energy policy. Professor Weaver's
book, Unitization of Oil and Gas Fields in Texas, despite the apparently
narrow title, earned her national recognition for its study of the
interplay between legislative, administrative and judicial decision making
in the conservation of oil and gas in Texas. She has also
co-authored the leading three-volume treatise in Texas oil and gas law.
She was the Director of the Russian Petroleum Legislation Project, blending
academic as well as organizational skills to draft a model petroleum
code for the new Russia, with the participation of the World Bank, the
European Bank, major oil companies, and Russian academics and officials. Professor
Weaver holds a B.A. in Economics from Harvard University, a Ph.C.
degree in Economics from the University of California at Los Angeles,
and a J.D., from the University of Houston.
