Special Institute on

Public Land Law, Regulation, and Management

  • Santa Fe, New Mexico

The significant amount of public lands and minerals across the western United States requires lawyers, landmen, and regulatory specialists to have a complete understanding of applicable laws, regulations, and policies to effectively operate on such lands. The Foundation will once again hold a Special Institute on Public Land Law, Regulation, and Management for those engaged in mineral or commodity extraction, renewable energy, infrastructure, and other projects involving Federal lands and minerals. The program will build on the Foundation’s previous programs regarding public lands held in 1992, 1997, 2003, 2014, and 2017. With recent changes in administrations and the potential for even more changes in the coming years, anyone with operations or activities on public lands, government officials, academics, regulatory specialists, and public land practitioners should attend. 

Join our expert faculty of current and former government officials, industry professionals, natural resources attorneys, NGO attorneys, and administrative law experts for informative presentations and discussion. Experienced in-house, outside, or agency attorneys, and other resource professionals—and those who are relatively new to the practice—will all benefit from the insights and experience of our distinguished speakers.

We are holding the Special Institute on Oil and Gas Agreements: Purchase and Sale Agreements at the same time at the same hotel. Your registration to one Institute allows you to attend sessions at the other Institute at no additional cost! See information for the Oil and Gas Agreements Institute HERE
