Tulane Law School has gathered a group of experts and put together a lecture series on all aspects of the Deepwater Horizon explosion and resulting catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The purpose of this series is to provide background on technical, scientific and policy aspects of the Deepwater Horizon/BP blowout, including deep water drilling; the blowout itself; the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem; oil, water and cleanup; containment responses; biological impacts; community impacts; legal issues; and policy implications beyond BP. Each lecture will be followed by a question and answer period. While Tulane law students may participate in this series for academic credit with the satisfactory completion of additional work, the series is intended equally for all students and the interested general public.
