Online PLM Certificate Program: Module 4 of 6 -Oil and Gas Law and Its Impact on Land Practices/ Instructor Alyce Hoge

Knowledge of the law is critical to the success of a land professional. For this reason, Module 4 focuses on the laws that impact the daily work of a land professional. Based on the Oil & Gas Law courses taught in law schools across the country (and on the Texas Bar Exam), this module focuses on the nature and characteristics of mineral interests, the rights and duties between the surface owner and mineral owners, the implied covenants in the Oil & Gas lease and Mineral Laws on hard minerals (on the AAPL exam).

As the old adage goes, "Ignorance of the law excuses no man." Don't be ignorant about laws that impact your work and take this important Module!


New students will need to purchase the Oil & Gas Land Reference Volume from the AAPL. Please go to their website at purchase your book.
