Content varies with the interests of those enrolled and the professor. The course will emphasize oil and gas law. Within that field, it will consider and the economics of the industry, including its environmental impact; its international aspects, including political concerns and its maritime aspects; i.e., including its environmental impact; its international aspects, including political concerns and its maritime aspects; i.e., offshore drilling and transportation. The broader context will include alternative sources of energy, as well as, more broadly still, the nature of energy, from its cosmological to its cellular and nuclear forms. Again, depending on interest, property law will be treated less completely than is often the case in these courses. No casebook is assigned; the readings will be new cases retrieved individually by students supplemented with duplicated materials.
