Two Law students Participate in Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Hearing

Two third year law students participated in the November Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Hearing.  They are both members of the Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Clinic at the University of Wyoming’s Law School. 

The Clinic is a partnership between the College of Law and the Attorney General’s office.  It is intended to give third year law students an opportunity to participate in hands-on projects with state agencies such as the Department of Environmental Quality, State Engineer's Office and the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. 

Pictured left to right are Austin Huff and Casey Terrell.  Both received approval from the University and the Wyoming Supreme Court to participate in limited practice on two show cause docket items, under the supervision of the WOGCC’s attorneys and the Attorney General’s Office.   Prior to the hearing, the two law students spent a day in Casper working with Assistant Attorney Generals and WOGCC Counsels Eric Easton and Mike Armstrong and WOGCC’s Natural Resources Supervisor Joe Scott to prepare for the for the cases.
