BP Blowout Lecture Series at Tulane Law

From Oliver Houck:

We will be preparing a series of background lectures on the BP blowout this fall at Tulane Law School, covering basic tech, engineering, science, law and policy issues.  They will set a stage for several courses on BP-related issues (environmental, admiralty, energy…), and for research projects for students interested in participating for credit.  The lectures may be of interest to you and your students as well, and we will set up a system to “stream” these lectures live to other schools, as you may wish (unfortunately, we cannot do Q and A with you from this classroom). We will also be happy to share ideas for related research topics, if and as you wish.

The program, subject to changes but at this point firm, is reflected in the notice that follows:
 
THE BP OIL SPILL LECTURE SERIES
TULANE LAW SCHOOL
FALL, 2010

OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC 

The purpose of this series is to provide background on technical, scientific and policy aspects of the BP blowout, including deep water drilling; the blowout; the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem; oil, water and cleanup; containment responses; biological impacts; community impacts; legal issues; and policy implications beyond BP.  The lectures (with Q and A following) will take place in room 110 of the law school, 6329 Freret Street, New Orleans, on Monday afternoons, from 4 – 5:15 pm, with exceptions noted.  While Tulane law students may participate in this series for academic credit with the satisfactory completion of additional work, it is intended equally for all students and the interested general public.  There is, of course, no admission.  For further inquiry, please contact Professor Houck at ohouck@tulane.edu (after August 5) or Forest Wootten, 2L, fwootten@tulane.edu.
