Coal Law Short Course, August 1-4 at the West Virginia University College of Law, provides extensive course materials and approximately 22 hours of Continuing Legal Education, including a field trip to the WVU Department of Mining Extension’s state-of-the-art simulated underground coal mine.  Dedicated in October 2009 with mining equipment and rescue chamber donated by area coal companies, the simulated underground coal mine facility near Core, WV, is used for specialized training for new miners and mine rescue teams, with the capability to provide live fire training, which attendees will observe. 

Comments about the Coal Law Short Course:

• “Printed materials were worth the price of admission”
• “One of the best conferences I’ve been to”
• “Materials themselves are worth coming for”
• “Suggest sending a copy of the materials to law school libraries in the region.”

The Coal Law Short Course will not be repeated until 2012.

Both courses will be conducted in classrooms at the WVU College of Law.  Registration fees include all meeting materials, daily refreshment breaks and box lunches, and evening receptions and dinner at the Waterfront Place Hotel, 2 Waterfront Place, Morgantown, WV.  There are direct flights to Morgantown from Washington, DC, or fly to Pittsburgh and drive approximately 70 miles South on I-79 to Morgantown.
