Special Institute on

Natural Resources Development and the Administrative State: Navigating Federal Agency Regulation and Litigation

Administrative law affects nearly every aspect of natural resources development. Proponents and opponents of development actions must be facile with agency permitting requirements, the passage and repeal of agency regulations, administrative appeals, judicial review of agency decisions, and executive orders. This Special Institute covers fundamental and advanced administrative law concepts that affect the oil and gas, mining, energy, and natural resources development industries. The Institute will also address how the industry is shaping administrative law.

Join our expert faculty of current and former government officials, industry professionals, natural resources attorneys, NGO attorneys, and administrative law experts for informative presentations and discussion. Experienced in-house, outside, or agency attorneys, and other resource professionals—and those who are relatively new to the practice—will benefit from the insights and experience of our distinguished speakers.

We hope you can join us in Denver to continue the tradition of valuable educational and networking opportunities provided by our Administrative Law institutes.
