5355 Oil & Gas Law - BROWNMAN- 23289
Charles Brownman (ADJUNCT)
Course Areas: Energy, Natural Resources and Environmental Law
Time: 7:30p-9:00p TTh Location: TUII-211
Course Outline: The oil & gas industry is prevalent throughout Texas, and has the ability to affect many different types of legal practice in Texas (besides being a frequent and common topic for each year's bar exams). Therefore, students will learn a bit about the industry's history and its jargon, as well as the regulatory protocols used by States; however, most of the semester will focus on the primary legal documents used by landowners, royalty owners and energy companies -- the Oil & Gas Lease, the Joint Operating Agreement, and the Farmout Agreement. Time permitting, we will also spend a class or two toward the end of the semester talking about recent legal and technical developments.
