About the Symposium

The Environmental & Energy Law & Policy Journal’s annual series focus on the intersection of environmental and energy law. Every year our symposium hosts numerous speakers with varying viewpoints on complex issues, and we always seek to secure presentations from government and industry in addition to the expert law professors and practitioners who contribute greatly to the program.  Our symposium also attracts a diverse audience that includes industry professionals, environmental advocates, and outside counsel from the Houston and Gulf Coast areas.
