The Initiative on Energy and Natural Resources Law and Policy

The interface between legal scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers is critical to the formation of robust pathways towards a low-carbon future. To this end, we are excited to be establishing a new collaborative initiative on energy and natural resources law and policy. The partnership draws on Colorado Law’s strong history of excellence in energy and natural resources law, and the technical and scientific excellence at the School of Mines.

Energy and Climate Law and Policy in Colorado

Colorado’s breathtaking natural environment, abundant fossil fuel and renewable energy resources and unique brand of bipartisanship provide the backdrop for its emergence as a national leader on energy and natural resources law and policy. This Webinar will explore that leadership as embodied in Colorado’s first-in-the-nation, bipartisan regulation of methane emissions from natural gas infrastructure; in its current efforts to rethink regulation of oil and gas extraction under SB 181; its partnership with major utilities to eliminate carbon from its electricity system; and in its engagement with national policy.

Getches-Wilkinson Center, CU Law School and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at Colorado School of Mines present a conversation with:

Eric Blank, Chair, Colorado Public Utilities Commission

Julie Murphy, Director, Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission

Morgan Bazilian, Director, Payne Institute, and Professor of Public Policy, Colorado School of Mines

Sharon Jacobs, Associate Professor and Board Member of the Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment, University of Colorado Law School
