Oil, Gas & Mineral Law

Section Focus

The Oil, Gas and Mineral Law Section has over 1,000 members, who practice or are interested in various aspects of energy law. The Section sponsors nine monthly lunch programs each year, which qualify for CLE credit. Programs are typically held on the fourth Tuesday of the month at The Houston Club, with speakers making presentations on a variety of energy topics.

The Section also sponsors a fall reception with a noted guest speaker, a holiday luncheon, and a summer reception to provide networking opportunities for members. An annual subscribers program has been instituted to provide a low-price package for members to attend all programs.
