Oil operators restoring production in Gulf after Don

on

NEW ORLEANS — The federal agency that oversees offshore oil and gas drilling says operators are restoring production in the Gulf of Mexico after the passage of Tropical Storm Don.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement said data from offshore operator reports submitted as of 11:30 a.m. Saturday showed that, as the storm approached, workers were evacuated from 62 of the 617 manned production platforms in the Gulf; and from two of the 62 drilling rigs.

The National Hurricane Center downgraded Don to a depression Friday night as the weak disturbance came ashore over ranch lands near Baffin Bay in Texas.

The bureau estimated that approximately 10.9 percent of the current oil production in the Gulf of Mexico was shut-in, and about 6.6 percent of natural gas production.

Charlotte School of Law Establishes Exchange Program with German Law School

Charlotte School of Law Establishes Exchange Program with German Law School

International Presence Enhances Students’ Experiences, Career Preparation

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) July 30, 2011

The respective Deans of the Charlotte School of Law and the Faculty of Law of the University of Münster, a public university located in the city of Münster, North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany, have signed an agreement that establishes a program allowing student and faculty exchanges, as well as additional cooperative initiatives, including joint courses, summer programs, research and other ventures.

This new partnership expands Charlotte School of Law’s international program and helps establish opportunities for students and faculty to experience different facets of international and comparative law.

“The practice of law truly has become global, and this agreement will enhance the international diversity of our student body while increasing the international legal experiences available to our students,” said Tony Ketron, assistant professor at Charlotte School of Law and Chair of its International Team, who visited the University of Münster and helped establish the program and its parameters.

The University of Münster is the fifth-largest university in Germany with nearly 40,000 students engaging in 250 fields of study. The Münster Faculty of Law is one of Germany’s oldest and most highly regarded law schools with over 5,000 students in its undergraduate law and LLM programs.

Qualified students at each institution will be able to participate in the exchange program for up to two semesters. The American Bar Association allows up to one-third of a student’s credits to come from an approved foreign university, Ketron said. Students from both schools are required to have the appropriate visas in place, and establishing the infrastructure to initiate that process will take additional time, he said.

The agreement with University of Münster’s Faculty of Law falls in line with the four goals of Charlotte School of Law’s International Team, which are to: develop opportunities for exchange programs; develop and enhance a robust international curriculum; provide future international employment and networking opportunities; and create the proper infrastructure to support these initiatives.

“This agreement builds on the work of the team that has established relationships, programs and student field work in China, Tanzania, Uganda and South Africa,” said Dennis Stone, interim dean of Charlotte School of Law. “This is just one of many programs in development to ensure that our students are prepared for 21st century practice and the shrinking world that we live in.”

“The University of Münster Faculty of Law proved to be a good match with our school because it offers several law courses in English,” Ketron said. “In addition, the city of Münster is a beautiful city with a rich cultural heritage that is easily accessible from Charlotte for travelling students and faculty.”
