The TJOGEL Society gives UT Law students the opportunity to meet, engage, and network with leading attorneys in energy legal practice from nearly all large law firms in Texas. Additionally, the Society organizes a number of social events for members, including happy hours and taco Tuesdays.
While networking events are primarily organized for 1Ls and LLMs, all TJOGEL events are open to Society members who have paid their dues.
In the words of TJOGEL's alumni board President, and UT Law Professor, Tom Hillebrand, "the people I met through TJOGEL became my best professional mentors, my peers, and closest friends."

The TJOGEL Society
TJOGEL regularly brings in some of the best attorneys in Texas and beyond to speak to our students about pressing issues in the energy industry. See our list of sponsors for a taste of the excellent firms that send attorneys to our roundtables. Plus, free lunch!
From landing your first job, to becoming a decision-maker in the industry, networking is a central piece for success. TJOGEL hosts various dinners, Happy Hours, and Meet & Greets for students and industry professionals to meet and connect.
Primarily for our 1L students to meet attorneys and recruiters, TJOGEL hosts two career panels a year to introduce our 1L students to career opportunities within the energy space. See our list of sponsors for a sampling of the firms who visit us regularly.
The marquee event of the Journal, TJOGEL's annual Energy Law Symposium brings together the best and brightest attorneys, professionals, and students in the industry to Austin, the official capital of Texas and the unofficial energy capital of the world.
TJOGEL will fill your stomach as much as your brain! Come join us for our Weekly Taco Tuesdays outside the law school at George's Patio to meet journal and society members while enjoying local breakfast tacos!
