Scholars and practitioners who work in the areas of energy law, land use, regulatory law, and real estate law should attend the Kratovil Conference to consider the questions that are now coming into view about this controversial and hotly debated extraction process. Chief among them is the question of whether the supplies of natural gas produced by fracking are a real bridge, or merely a detour, on the road to development of sustainable/renewable sources of energy that mitigate climate change. In addition, what are the issues for real estate practitioners who find their clients affected by these developments?

The Kratovil Conference on Real Estate Law & Practice was established in 1993 to bring together leading scholars, practitioners, and industry professionals to consider cutting-edge issues important to commercial real estate attorneys, their clients, industry leaders, and our society. The Kratovil Conferences are unique because they are the only forums presented by a law school that address the policy and practical implications of issues of concern to the real estate industry and to the attorneys who practice in the field.
