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 Louisiana mineral law and facilitate its development through educational activities. In addition to consideration of important developments in the law of oil and gas at the annual program, the Mineral Law Institute sponsors other continuing education programs at the Law Center and serves as a bridge to energy-related research and educational programs at Louisiana State University.
