The Student Association of Professional Landmen (SAPL) works to promote the Professional Land and Resource Management profession. SAPL works closely with the Lafayette Association of Professional Landmen. Active members of the student association must be a professional land and resource management major. A non-major may be an associate member.

As part of the Moody College of Business, the Professional Land and Resource Management (PLRM) degree holds the distinction of being one of the very few in North America accredited by the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL). Natural resources abound globally and UL Lafayette’s program offers extraordinary education and training in how to manage, acquire, and negotiate these resources. In tandem with the in-class education, the PLRM program also offers the unprecedented experience of managing its own oil lease. As a result, graduates can already include “experienced landman” on their resume.

Students who graduate from the B.I. Moody  III College of Business PLRM program are products of a carefully planned curriculum designed to afford students diverse opportunities in the land and resource industry.
