WVU Law is committed to playing a prominent role in shaping the energy and environmental policies of the future for the state, the nation, and the world.

Energy is the foundation of our nation’s future, both economically and environmentally. West Virginia is at the center of energy production for the country. There is no better place to learn about the intersecting laws and policies governing all of the country’s energy resources than at WVU Law.

While many law schools provide opportunities to learn energy or environmental law, WVU Law is committed to providing students opportunities to learn the full range of energy, environmental and sustainable development law through its Center for Energy and Sustainable Development and through its other resources in the area.

WVU Law provides a broad and deep offering of courses, experiential learning opportunities, and practical training for every part of the energy sector. Our broad spectrum of courses allows our students to prepare to be lawyers serving energy companies, investors, utilities, manufacturing companies, lawmakers, policymakers, regulators, land use professionals, and environmental organizations.
