Marcellus Shale Development and Pennsylvania

On Friday, September 27, 2013, Widener University Law School in Harrisburg will hold a first-of-its-kind conference on sustainability and Marcellus Shale development. Pennsylvania is the epicenter of a rapidly evolving national effort to develop deep shale gas reserves. This conference will assess what we have learned from Pennsylvania’s experience to date about the role of law in fostering sustainability of shale gas production, how this translates elsewhere, and what needs to be done so that hydraulic fracturing contributes to a sustainable future. Panels of distinguished experts will discuss the issue from environmental, community, public health, energy and climate change, and governance perspectives.

The symposium will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Room A180 of the Administration Building at Widener University’s Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Campus. It has been approved for 7 hours of CLE credit, including an hour of ethics, in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
