LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming College of Law's Center for Law and Energy Resources in the Rockies has received a $25,000 gift from BP America to develop the center's summer energy law institute.

Launched in spring 2013, the center serves as the focal point for the many energy and natural resource initiatives at the UW law college. It develops new initiatives and outreach opportunities on the UW campus, in the state and in the Rocky Mountain region.

The summer energy law institute will provide UW students, as well as other students from across the country interested in energy law, an opportunity to gain a specific energy law-focused education.

UW faculty members and other expert law faculty will provide instruction on a variety of key energy law areas during the summer program.
