    Why not take the EBA Law School "Road Show" on the road?
    EBA
    The Young Lawyers Council of EBA created a law school "Road Show" for members to take to local universities and your alma mater and share your experience of working within the energy law sector. Through this program, young lawyers and seasoned practitioners visit law schools to present students with information about the practice of energy law, spark discussions on recent developments, and answer questions. Visit the "Road Show" webpage for information on setting up a presentation, presenter check list and a PowerPoint presentation customizable to your location. This is a great way to give back to the industry and engage law students in an exciting field of practice.
