Students in Professor K.K. DuVivier's Energy Law class hosted an event on campus to inform attendees about energy.

The events began at 3 PM on April 25th. A panel of students set the stage for the energy discussion of the evening. These students discussed energy footprints and shared Colorado's energy sources and uses. The event then featured a free screening of the documentary "Switch." The film "explores the world's premier sites for all energies; coal to solar, oil to bio-fuels.  It talks to the people driving energy today; international leaders of government, industry and academia. In the end, it cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our energy future as surprising as it is practical.”

Students provided a panel discussion immediately following the movie. The students lead the audience on a thought provoking discussion regarding the following sources of energy: coal, natural gas, nuclear power, and renewable energy sources such as solar, hydroelectric and wind. The students discussed each source; the associated benefits and negative aspects. They then discussed legal issues that frequently arise particular to each source.

The students engaged the audience through discussion questions and allowed the audience to ask questions directly. The event highlighted the Energy Law student's knowledge of energy issues. The event was free to the public and we hope to see more of Professor DuVivier's Energy Law students  share their knowledge with the public; stay tuned for more information!
