Energy Deals Academy

Faculty Sponsor: Professor Christine Hurt


The BYU Energy Deals Academy is a transactional lawyering program focused on negotiating and closing the financing of an energy infrastructure transaction sponsored by a joint venture. Students will gain experience with commercial financing, joint venture agreements, and operating agreements in the energy sector. The 2022 Energy Deals Academy will be held in the Houston offices of Orrick, building on its Energy & Infrastructure team’s deep understanding of the commercial and legal issues impacting the global energy industry.
