An article written by Jeff Cullers, a 2010 LLM graduate of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Graduate Program at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, was recently published in the prestigious Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation Journal.
In "Conflicting Easements: Finding a Legal Space Where Land Conservation and Mineral Development Can Live in Harmony," Mr. Cullers suggests that "the accommodation doctrine of mineral law offers the best solution to the conflict because it strikes the right balance between surface conservatism and mineral development."
The article can be found in Vol. 47, No. 2, 2010, at pages 423-438.
The Journal is the official publication of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, one of the world's leading educational organizations dedicated to the study of the legal system and issues affecting natural resources law.
