Section on Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law overview

The Section on Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law (SEERIL) has a membership of 2,400 lawyers in private practice, oil and mining companies, international organisations, government and academia. The section coordinates the activities of six committees (see the quick links to the right), which aim to advance the development and understanding of the law affecting oil and gas, mining, power, water, international construction projects and environment, health and safety law. The United Kingdom Energy Lawyers Group is also part of the section.

The AAG

The Academic Advisory Group (AAG) is a distinctive feature of SEERIL. For over 20 years SEERIL (previously SERL) members who also hold academic appointments in law schools around the world have formed a group of scholarly advisers to the parent body. Currently AAG members come from such diverse locations as North America, the EU, Nigeria, Japan, New Zealand, South America and Singapore.

Book projects

The AAG’s primary mission within SEERIL is to prepare a major work of scholarship every two years. These address both national and regional approaches to contemporary topics and the development of international law in the field. The three prior titles; Regulating Energy and Natural Resources (2006), Energy Security (2004) and Public Participation in the Sustainable Development of Mining and Energy Resources (2002) were co-published in book format by Oxford University Press.
