The Oil, Gas and Mineral Law Section was established in 1976 and consists of an oil and gas division and a hard minerals division. The primary purpose of the section is to keep its members apprised of the developments in the law, and this is accomplished by cosponsoring with ABICLE an annual seminar on oil, gas and mineral law, as well as sponsoring a "mini-seminar" at the section meeting during the annual meeting of the state bar. Currently, the section is preparing a handbook on oil, gas and mineral law in Alabama. Annual dues are $15.
