Each year the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation brings a panel of energy law practitioners to its member law schools to provide an opportunity for students to hear from those in the energy field, and make connections with potential future employers.  EMLF Staff is also in attendance to discuss EMLF’s academic scholarship opportunities and the Schetroma Travel Grant which provides travel to the EMLF Annual Institute.   

Panelists will discuss their educational and career path, and what the day to day duties are in their current role, as well as take questions from those students in attendance.  Law students at EMLF member schools may join this free opportunity to hear from and network with current energy practitioners. 

If you don’t see your school on this list, check back soon as new panels are still being added.

Previous panels may be viewed on the EMLF Youtube Channel
