Professor Fershee is author of new energy law textbook

MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA —West Virginia University College of Law professor Joshua Fershee is the author of a new textbook on energy law. 

“Energy Law: A Context and Practice Casebook” (Carolina Academic Press, 2014) covers energy-focused topics such as economic regulations, mineral rights, market structures, and environmental concerns.

“Energy law is actually kind of hard to define, and one of the things that I think my book helps show is that it’s . . . an amalgam of a variety of different areas,” said Fershee in an interview with New Books in Law.

“Energy Law: A Context and Practice Casebook” is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

Fershee joined the faculty of WVU Law in fall 2012 as part of the Center for Energy and Sustainable Development and the WVU Shale Gas Initiative. His research and scholarship focus primarily on energy law and business law. He is director of WVU’s LL.M. in energy and sustainable development law.
