Why Energy Law?

Energy is at the core of every business, from retail to internet services to transportation.   Each industry sector needs to control energy costs to the greatest extent it can, and knowing the law of energy is the clearest path toward gaining a competitive advantage by lowering energy costs. 

Energy law is real estate law, oil & gas law, natural resources law, administrative law, economics and environmental law.  The MJEL curriculum encompasses much of what makes up the Energy Law program at TU, but focuses on the production, transportation and use of energy across a range of industries. 

As the energy sector experiences tremendous growth, the national and international demand for professionals trained in all aspects of energy law – regulation, transactions and conservation – increases exponentially. The MJEL program at TU College of Law was designed to provide the appropriate education and hands-on training needed for graduates to make an impact on the world around them, while building a successful career. 

If you have a Bachelor’s degree, and are looking for an innovative and engaging way to continue your education or your career, MJEL can open doors to the energy industry in a way never before possible.
The MJEL classes are taught by law professors, practicing attorneys and energy professionals who have first-hand experience with producing, transporting, selling and using energy in business every day.

•  Interstate and intrastate energy transportation regulations
