Her practice included oil and gas litigation and transactions in such areas as the Eagle Ford shale, Barnett shale, Hugoton basin, and Permian basin. Before law school, Professor Ehrman worked as a petroleum engineer in the upstream, midstream, and pipeline sectors of the energy industry. In addition to her experience with the technical aspects of the industry, she also worked as an analyst in the areas of commodity risk management and energy trading.
