  • Comparative Offshore Oil & Gas Conference - USA, UK, Norway: On March 12-13, 2015, LSU Law School will host its first Comparative Offshore Oil & Gas Conference in Baton Rouge, LA. The purpose of the conference is to examine several highly pertinent (at times controversial!) regulatory and contractual issues as these are dealt with in three major developed offshore oil and gas jurisdictions: the USA (OCS), the UK and Norway. The conference will prove invaluable for US in-house counsels, commercial negotiators, and outside counsels presently involved (or considering involvement) in the UK and/or Norway. The conference will also serve as a valuable refresher course for US corporates and advisors engaged in or considering OCS business.  For academics, students and others, the conference will provide an invaluable comparative review of how things are done differently (even much differently!) in different countries.

Professor and Center Director David Pierce, one of the nation’s leading oil and gas law educators and co-author of Cases and Materials on Oil and Gas Law, will teach the course. Pierce has taught the classroom version of this course for 25 years.

  • Call for papers: OGEL Special Issue on emerging issues in Polar Energy Law and Governance. The Polar areas provide special challenges, opportunities and restrictions regarding the development of energy resources, particularly oil and gas. The potential for enormous untapped energy reserves and the international law challenges of maritime boundaries borders and competing claims of sovereignty will make the Arctic region home to one of the most compelling sets of international legal issues in the 21st Century. The renegotiation of the Madrid Protocol in the Antarctic, which currently prevents mining in the Antarctic regions, combined with similar issues of competing claims of sovereignty, and the overarching Antarctic Treaty Framework means that potential energy resource development Antarctic region will become increasingly controversial and prominent. Papers should be submitted by 15 March 2015 deadline to as well as a copy to .
