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.   

EMLF’s Annual Careers in Energy Program will be held virtually this year to accommodate COVID-19 guidelines.  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. Each of the four programs features a different panel and students may register for as many panels as they’d like!
