Basics for Landmen, Legal Descriptions, Remedies & Enforcement
Starting out with a fundamental understanding of contracting principles, and how they apply to real estate and oil and gas transactions. Since contracts dealing with real estate are required to be in writing, and generally require a valid legal description, we also cover legal descriptions in some detail in this class. Next, the Contracts class explores how courts interpret contracts, and the general rules of construction that they use, to better help you make sense of contracts that are ambiguous or could have been drafted more clearly. Finally, discuss various remedies and enforcement options for contracts, and how those enforcement options apply in the oil and gas context.
