This Just In: More Oil and Gas Law Resources

Oil and gas law : a legal research guide / by Lauren E. Schroeder  will help you find relevant statutes, cases, regulations, agency materials and secondary sources for research in the growing area of oil and gas law.  The book focuses on domestic oil and gas law, but also covers sources related to oil pollution and introductory information on international oil and gas law research.

BNA Tax Management Portfolios  are accessible remotely and in the law school to law students and faculty as part of the library’s BNA databases.  Several of these address taxation issues in the oil and gas industry, including:

(While the BNA Tax Managment Portfolios are not new to the library, they are definitely worth pointing out.)

Urban Agriculture Symposium Friday

As the movement towards local food continues to grow, cities are finding that they must develop laws and policies to allow for and regulate agricultural practices within urban communities.  On Friday April 20, C|M|LAW is hosting Urban Agriculture: Not an Oxymoron, a symposium on policies for cultivating city land and increasing access to local food.  Join national scholars, community leaders, and locavores in discussing:

  • Why local food benefits the community
  • Laws and policies that Cleveland and other cities have implemented to increase local food production and access to it
  • Benefits and challenges of implementing these policies
  • Increasing connections between rural farmers and urban consumers.

The event is free and open to the public, and 3.0 hours of CLE credit is available to registrants. A reception with local food from Cleveland Crops and Nature’s Bin will follow the symposium.
