UH Law Center 3L Rollag wins international energy law writing competition

Megan Rollag

Megan Rollag continued the University of Houston Law Center’s success at the recent Association of International Petroleum Negotiators Writing Competition.

Jan. 2, 2020 – Third-year University of Houston Law Center student Megan Rollag earned top honors in the 2019-2020 Association of International Petroleum Negotiators Writing Competition with her paper, “Future of Cross-Border Pipeline Projects in AMLO’s Mexico: What’s the Risk.”

The win marks three consecutive years where a Law Center student has won the competition.

"During my time at the Law Center, I discovered my passion for the practice of international oil and gas law," Rollag said. "A lot of my experience came from an externship at Mexico's National Hydrocarbons Commission and I have been able to work for several oil and gas companies following that experience.

"My paper was a product of my practical experience as well as what I have learned from classes provided by the Law Center. It is certainly a validating feeling that my paper was selected for the competition because it was a product of my passion."

Rollag’s paper is now eligible for submission to The Association of International Petroleum Negotiators official publication, the Journal of World Energy Law & Business. Rollag will be invited to attend either the association’s 2020 International Petroleum Summit in Bangkok or the Model Contracts Workshop in Rio de Janeiro in October 2020.
