27th Annual Energy Law Institute
For Attorneys and Landmen
Wednesday and Thursday, August 27-28, 2014
$25 Off your tuition for members of American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL), Houston Association of Professional Landmen (HAPL) and Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN)

The 27th Annual Energy Law Institute For Attorneys and Landmen is packed with important topics for all practitioners in the oil and gas industry. Attendees will hear from experts about subsurface trespass; title issues; hydraulic fracturing; important environmental Acts; lease maintenance; royalties and deductions; and allocating risk in oilfield contracts. They’ll learn the latest about AAPL’s Joint Operating Agreements; pipelines and eminent domain; operator/non-operator disputes; and harnessing the power of arbitration. The Institute also includes two Case Law Updates (one addressing Texas cases and the other addressing cases from outside of Texas) and a coastal and offshore Gulf of Mexico Update. Even the ethics session promises to be new and exciting.

Obtain virtually all your MCLE hours in two days or, if your schedule doesn’t permit you to be gone for two days, come for just one. Be sure to attend the Networking Reception on Wednesday after the day’s program and meet and mingle with the Institute’s Faculty and your fellow attendees. But regardless of whether you attend the entire Institute or only a part of it, you’ll obtain practical tools and techniques you can apply immediately to help best serve your clients.
