Who We Are

The Oil and Gas, Natural Resources, and Energy Journal (ONE J) focuses on all facets of the energy and natural resources industry—including oil and gas, wind and other renewables, water, and agriculture. Since ONE J began operation in the spring of 2015, its student editorial boards have published over 4,100 pages of scholarly articles and case summaries. Students publish a new ONE J issue online four times a year.

According to statistics from Digital Commons, ONE J works have been downloaded over 56,875 times from 3,864 institutions in 164 countries since the journal’s founding. In the ‘Energy and Utilities Law Commons’ section of the Digital Commons site, five of the ten most popular articles for December 2017 came from ONE J. The readership for these works consists of scholars and practitioners around the world.

ONE J is the first peer-reviewed publication of its kind in the nation. The journal also hosts an annual symposium each spring.

Students at the College of Law are eligible to join ONE J during the summer before their 2L year. Rising 2L students may receive offers for membership based on either their performance in first-year classes or their written submissions during the annual law review writing competition. Rising 3L students and transfer students are also eligible for membership through the writing competition.
