The energy industry is heavily regulated yet energy law is a rapidly changing field. The goal of this course is to provide an overview of energy law by examining selected topics in the law of extraction, generation, and distribution of energy resources in the electric, natural gas, and oil industries. This course does not address the transportation industry. This course concentrates on the role of state and federal agencies, the balance between regulation and competition, and the transition to renewable energy. Taking Administrative Law prior to this course is recommended, but not required.
Grading: Letter graded.
