YPE Midland - "Drilling Down" Lunch and Learn

Sponsored by Oklahoma City University

Tuesday, Nov 19 2013 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM CST

Speaker Meredith Wegener

Position: Director, Energy Legal Studies Program
Company: Oklahoma City University

Biography

Professor Wegener serves as the Director of Energy Legal Studies at the Meinders School of Business. In addition to her role as Director, Professor Wegener teaches graduate courses in the Energy Management, Energy Legal Studies, and MBA programs.

The intersection of law and energy serves as the primary foundation of her research agenda. For example, her most recent article, Drilling Down: New York, Hydraulic Fracturing, and the Dormant Commerce Clause, accepted for publication in 2013, examines the issues surrounding unconventional drilling for shale gas in New York and the national implications as seen through the lens of the United States Constitution. She
has published articles critically analyzing issues in both contracts and torts. She is currently working on an article that takes the recent United States Supreme Court decision in Koontz v. St. John’s River Water Management District concerning the Takings Clause and applies it to the denial of drilling permits. Takings Clause arguments have potentially been expanded by the language of Koontz. If taken certain directions, Koontz mayprove to be a very powerful tool for those who seek permits to drill while
limiting the power of state regulatory agencies.

Professor Wegener is a graduate of Trinity University and graduated with honors from the University of Oklahoma College of Law and was selected as a member of Order of the Coif. She served as managing editor and founding board member of the Oklahoma Journal of Law and Technology, and the president of the Board of Advocates. As a lawyer, Professor Wegener went into practice at Gum, Puckett & Mackechnie (formerly Spradling, Alpern & Gum) where her practice entailed commercial litigation, oil and gas, trucking and administrative law litigation, and insurance defense. Professor Wegener obtained her Master of Laws from New York University School of Law where she was a Comfort Scholar and was awarded the Seymour Goldstein Memorial Prize. After earning her LL.M. from NYU, Professor Wegener taught for
two years as a visiting associate professor at OU Law School in Contracts, Torts and Secured Transactions.


She is a member of the Oklahoma Bar. She is a member of the Junior League, serves as President of the Oklahoma County Bar Foundation and on the Westminster Child Development Center Board, and is a barrister in the William J. Holloway Inn of Court.

She enjoys traveling, cooking, and spending time with her family: Husband Bobby, daughter Harper Rose and son Henry.
