I have wondered the very same thing. Anyone? EarlCat? Jeffort?
I go to Kansas, people say the oil and gas program is great. Many Denver firms do OCI here.
If you couldn't get into UT/SMU/UH - how on earth do you think you're going to get into VE, BB, FJ?
That's sort of what people say about sports law or any other specific area. If you want to go into something like that, I still think your best bet is going to a T25 school. Outside the T25, I do think specializations and clinics and certificate programs and USNWR rankings for specializations matters.
Yale, then Harvard and Stanford. Oil and Gas practice is no different than any other practice. Big Texas (and NY, Chi, Cali) firms handle the transactional work and Big DC firms handle a lot of the regulatory work.
I am inclined to disagree. Oil and gas firms/companies like industry-specific coursework if you are really going to be an oil and gas specialist. It does make a difference.
Thank you very much for your replies, though!
What firms do oil and gas work?
