Kaiser Foundation Funds TU Position in Energy Law

The University of Tulsa College of Law will announce the creation of an endowed chair at 4 p.m. Sept. 29. The George Kaiser Family Foundation provided the gift, which establishes an additional faculty position focusing on sustainable energy sources and emerging trends.
The announcement, open to the public, will be in the Price & Turpen Courtroom.
“The George Kaiser Family Foundation is committed to bringing top-notch talent to Tulsa and is furthering that goal through tremendous generosity to TU. The College of Law is thrilled to employ these resources to recruit an excellent scholar in energy law,” said Janet K. Levit, dean of the TU College of Law.
Levit plans to have the position filled for the 2010-11 academic year.
The professor will teach in the areas of energy policy, energy law as it applies to sustainability and renewable resources, public utility law and environmental law. The professor will also serve as a fellow of the National Energy Policy Institute, a partnership formed between the George Kaiser Family Foundation and TU charged with developing recommendations for a national energy policy to reduce America’s dependence on imported oil and its greenhouse gas emissions, among other initiatives.
