Beyond the Classroom

Beyond the Classroom

Many of our graduates embark on an energy practice, whether with a law firm, energy company, or other legal organization. Texas Tech Law gives students the opportunity to learn both the law and industry standards through a variety of experiences outside the traditional classroom.

Wind Farm Field Trip

Students have the opportunity to tour an area wind farm, inspect wind turbines, and learn how wind-energy companies manage these operations.

Energy Law Interest Group

The Energy Law Interest Group is one of the largest student-run organizations at Texas Tech Law. Through membership, students are able to participate in various energy-law related events and activities throughout the year. They are made aware of exclusive opportunities that are related to the energy-law practice.

Saturday-Morning Site Visit

Each semester, on a scheduled Saturday morning, students have the opportunity to tour a local oil-and-gas facility and become more familiar with field equipment and operations.

Midland Field Trip

Each semester, students have the opportunity to travel to Midland on a field trip to learn more about the oil-and-gas industry, an energy-law practice, and the Midland-Odessa legal community and business market.
