Hogan Lovells' Scot Anderson named president of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation

Denver, 30 July 2021 – The Trustees Council for the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation has elected Hogan Lovells partner Scot Anderson as its next president for 2021-2022.

“This is an exciting time for the Foundation. Our two immediate past presidents, Rebecca Watson and Stuart Butzier, provided exceptional leadership through the pandemic and kept the Foundation moving forward while the world was standing still,” Anderson said. “We asked our volunteers and staff to provide new content and programming in innovative ways, and they did so efficiently and effectively, again and again. And now due to their extraordinary effort and dedication, we are ready to emerge from the pandemic as strong as ever with live programs beginning next month.”

Anderson now serves as the head of the Board of Directors, which is guided by a Trustees Council composed of representatives from 67 constituent organizations — 36 law schools, 13 bar associations, and 18 mining and oil and gas associations — as well as 25 at-large trustees elected annually, a number of honorary trustees who have made vital contributions to the work of the Foundation, and the Foundation’s past presidents.

The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the scholarly and practical study of the laws and regulations relating to oil and gas, mining, energy, public lands, water, environmental, and international law. To reflect the breadth of its geographic scope and subject area coverage, the foundation recently approved changing its name to “The Foundation for Natural Resources and Energy Law.” Anderson will lead the efforts to implement the name change with the Board and staff over the course of the next nine to 12 months.
