2022 TJOGEL Symposium Overview

Presented by the Texas Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law, the 2022 TJOGEL Symposium will take place on Thursday, February 24 and Friday, February 25.

 

This year's symposium will be a "hybrid" format: the Symposium will be held in-person at the Etter Harbin Alumni Center on UT's Campus and the Symposium will also be simultaneously on Zoom. However, we encourage all participants to join us in-person! Registration fees for in-person and Zoom participation are the same.

 

 Please see below for a full schedule and speaker's list. This year's program features a diverse range of speakers from all corners of the energy law industry. We are thrilled to provide a platform for their insights on events like Winter Storm Uri, COVID-19, and many more.
