Legal Aspects of Hydraulic Fracturing: 2013 Idaho Law Review Symposium

I am excited to announce that on March 29, 2013, the Idaho Law Review will be hosting its annual symposium, which this year is Legal Aspects of Hydraulic Fracturing.  As the faculty adviser for the event, I am so proud of our students for putting together such an excellent program that will include both top professors and top practitioners from around the country. 

Even better, we will be live streaming the event so those of you who can't make it to Boise can join us from wherever you might be (office, home, cafe, mountaintop). 

Moreover, we will also offer 5 streaming CLE credits, which should be attractive to practitioners (outside of Idaho, reciprocal credits must be authenticated with attorney's state bar by submitting materials we will provide).

Come join us in Boise if you can, and if you can't make it to Boise, join us online!  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the event.
