The Louisiana Mineral Law Institute was created in 1953 as an annual continuing legal education program. The goal of the Institute is to promote an understanding of the mineral law of Louisiana and neighboring states, and to facilitate the development of the law through educational activities. In 2019 the Sixty-sixth Annual Institute was held in Baton Rouge, drawing nearly 200 lawyers, landmen, and industry executives from several states. In addition to consideration of important developments in the law of oil and gas at the annual program, the Mineral Law Institute publishes a newsletter and sponsored the publication of a treatise on Louisiana Mineral Law.
Annual Mineral Law Institute Postponed
This year’s version of the Annual Mineral Law Institute, the second oldest annual oil and gas law conference in the country, has been postponed as part of LSU’s response to concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus. We will try to reschedule the conference for later this year, but given continuing uncertainties about travel restrictions and the length of LSU’s cancellation of events, we cannot set a new date at this time.
