Information on the Series: Energy Law For Non-Energy Attorneys

Join us for a three-part series designed to introduce non-energy attorneys to energy law by looking at the legal and regulatory framework and issues in domestic energy production, energy distribution, and energy consumption.


The energy market continues to evolve, and this evolution brings with it business opportunities and risks. But energy growth and environmental impacts are increasingly intertwined through complicated federal and state regulations. To practice in today's world and to take advantage of new opportunities in the energy sector, environmental, real estate, corporate, non-profit, and other lawyers need to understand energy or at least be able to identify energy issues. This series, a collaborative effort between the American Law Institute CLE (ALI CLE) and the Environmental Law Institute (ELI), will allow audience members to do just that.
