Course Overview Video

Jump Start Your Career

This course is for those wanting to enter the Alternative Energy Sector for the first time. 

It is designed for beginning landmen, advanced landmen or those simply looking to start becoming a landman and are choosing this industry to begin their career.

This course is a five-part series and provides an in-depth look at the general practices of a landman working in the Alternative Energy.

The course addresses several key issues such as, comparing the oil and gas lease to a wind or solar lease – what rights come with who came first.  The course comes with sample documents for download.


  • Making the Transition (Oil and Gas Landmen entering the industry)
  • Wind/Solar Lease compared to the Oil and Gas Lease (Who comes first – Accommodation Doctrine applications)
  • Surface Damage and Use Issues/Environmental Concerns (Right of Way, Easements)
  • Best Practices and Policies (Public Policies, Eminent Domain, Government Issues)
  • Core Agreements (Leases, Easements, Federal/Indian Lands, Land Trusts, Operation and Maintenance Agreements, Power Purchase Agreement, Eminent Domain, Power Interconnect Agreements).

Dear David,
Thank you for the truly informative course held last September.
I have completed my first year as an in-house landman for a petroleum company and can’t imagine how I could have achieved it without your excellent tutelage.
