Abstract

“What is energy law?” That’s the question I often hear after I tell people I’m teaching the course. Today the importance of energy seems self-evident, but classes in the subject have had an up-and-down history in U.S. law schools that may have led to confusion about its content, so a brief history of its role in law schools is appropriate.

Keywords: energy law, law school, symposium, environmental law
