JAMESTOWN – The issue of Hydrofracking will take center stage at the Robert H. Jackson Center later this month. Officials at the Jackson Center say it will present a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Seminar entitled, “To Frack or Not to Frack? That is the Question,” on Tuesday, April 24.
A biannual event, the purpose of the seminar is to provide local attorneys the opportunity to further their legal education as it relates to current events and changing practices. The topic of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a timely one with regards to the future of gas well drilling in New York State.
A variety of speakers will be featured including keynote speaker Commissioner Joseph Martens of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Former Public Relations Director for the Buffalo Sabres, Paul Wieland, will be the luncheon speaker.
Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. in the Jackson Center Lobby and the first presentation is scheduled for 8:45 a.m. While the seminar and luncheon are free of charge, seating is limited. Advanced registration is encouraged. Participants are asked to register with Mary Parsons, CLE administrator, at (716) 847-5461 before Friday, April 13. For additional questions please contact the Jackson Center at (716) 483-6646.
