RSVP here 5 CLE credits available for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys.

This Symposium will provide a forum for experts in their field—representing government, finance, the legal practice and academia—to discuss the future of liquid natural gas exports from the United States. How much natural gas should, and will, the Department of Energy (DOE) approve to be exported? What are the financing implications of the recent changes to the DOE approval process? In what ways may the law of the World Trade Organization constrain U.S. policy regarding natural gas exports? These questions and more will be explored.
