University of Oklahoma College of Law to offer oil, gas and energy law program
NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma College of Law will offer a new Master of Legal Studies degree in oil, gas and energy law beginning in the fall of 2016. The program is designed for non-lawyers.
The program is a 32-credit-hour graduate degree that can be completed in 15 months. Of the 32 credit hours, 28 will be offered completely online. The final four credits are earned during a one-week intensive session at the OU College of Law. The degree program is designed to offer a competitive advantage to people who assemble land interests for the energy industry, negotiate oil and gas contracts, deal with mineral rights or work closely with oil and gas or energy attorneys.
“Oil and gas, natural resources and energy law is one of the strategic academic areas in which our college is a national and international leader,” said OU College of Law Dean Joseph Harroz, Jr.
