Denver to edit Journal of Energy & Natural Resources Law

The University of Denver Sturm College of Law is the new home for the international Journal of Energy & Natural Resources Law, a product of the International Bar Association. Law students will now oversee the editing and publication of the leading refereed journal in the field of energy and natural resources law.

Professor Don Smith, who directs the Environmental & Natural Resources Law & Policy Graduate Program at the law school, says the strengths of the Denver’s program  – environmental, natural resources, and energy law at both domestic and international levels – are well suited to editing the journal .

“It’s quite prestigious to have been chosen by the IBA to edit this Journal,” Smith said. “For us, as an institution, this is a great achievement. It’s a ‘vehicle,’ in a manner of speaking, to have access to the very best minds in the world, and it will introduce our program to all of these people around the globe. It puts us on the map, really.”

The quarterly publication was previously at University of Calgary and University of Dundee in Scotland.
