at WVU Law School – August 2-6, 2009

Complete information on the EMLF’s Coal Law Short Course is now available at www.emlf.org.

The EMLF Coal Law Short Course is designed to give lawyers who are new to the practice of coal and energy law the tools to handle issues arising in both litigation and transactional settings. While the lawyer in practice 0-5 years will benefit from the Coal Law Short Course, landmen, business persons and engineers wanting a better understanding of the laws and regulation of coal will find the program invaluable. 
 
The short course begins with a 90-minute presentation on geology and mining techniques, followed by three days (21 hours) of classroom study, and concludes with an optional mining operations tour on August 6.
