As Texas Tech University celebrates its centennial year in 2023, the Jerry S. Rawls College of Business will highlight impactful individuals from years past. While each person be it as a student, alumni, friend, faculty or staff member may have impacted the college or their industry differently, one thing will always be constant: they are all part of the Rawls College legacy.

As an associate professor of practice, Jerome Schuetzeberg has positively influenced thousands of students throughout his 50+ year career at Rawls College. Often referred to by students as a legend within the energy industry, Schuetzeberg specializes in oil & gas law and business law. He received his bachelor's in AgEconomics at Texas Tech University followed by his Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from the University of Texas School of Law. After a brief, but memorable, career in the Lubbock County District Attorney's office, he entered private law practice in 1967.

In 1968, he began teaching Oil and Gas Law at Texas Tech on an adjunct basis. Drawing on years of experience in pipeline construction, ownership of wells and attorney for independent producers, Jerome brings a wealth of practical experience to the classroom to complement his academic training.
