This one and a half day conference will provide an overview of the legal issues presented as the State of Ohio and local landowners work with the industry to extract oil and gas from the Utica Shale. The conference will provide an introduction to hydrofracturing and oil and gas leasing. In addition to focusing on original leases, the conference will address the tax, accounting, and estate planning issues that may arise in the context of those leasing relationships. It will address more advanced contracting, including purchase and sale agreements, financing agreements, joint operating agreements. It will provide a context for discussing the environmental concerns that have arisen as a result of hydraulic fracturing, and the attending economic development concerns and potential.

The Center for Health Law and Policy presents: More Than a Tummy-Ache: Regulating, Preventing and Litigating Foodborne Illness Cases.
Robert Rodriguez, Supervisor, Consumer Safety Officer, and Import Program Manager, US Food and Drug Administration
Fred H. Pritzker, Esq., Partner, Pritzker Olsen Attorneys
Each year millions Americans are sickened, hospitalized, or die as the result of something they put into their stomach. To reduce this largely preventable public health problem, President Obama signed the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) into law. The FSMA gives the United State Food & Drug Administration more authority and resources for food contamination prevention and food inspections. Nonetheless,there has been increase in foodborne illness because the government has not taken steps to coordinate the efforts of the agencies that are responsible for keeping food safe.
John W. Dean, Nixon White House Counsel
James Robanalt, Partner, Thompson Hine
Forty years ago, John Dean was a 34-year-old lawyer faced with an ethical dilemma that set a historic precedent for the legal profession. As White House counsel, Dean learned that five men had been arrested for breaking into the Democratic National Headquarters at the Watergate Hotel. In the ensuing cover-up of the crime, Dean felt he had few choices beyond his obligation to the administration. Ultimately, he testified against President Nixon, who eventually resigned the presidency as a result of the scandal, and turned in the names of other officials he believed had been involved in the obstruction of justice—himself included. Many of the names on the list were lawyers, which brought to light the question of how those who practice law could be better equipped to defend their ethics and expose wrongdoing, rather than become a part of it.
Watergate’s legacy directly led to reform in the legal profession, including the mandatory teaching of ethics in law schools, a separate ethics bar exam, and ongoing requirements for Continuing Legal Education in ethics and professionalism.
Dean, who spent four months in prison for his role in the scandal, will address Watergate as a case study to examine cover-up crimes and activities and analyze them under post-Watergate ethical rules and standards.
Cleveland attorney James Robenalt, a partner in the firm Thompson Hine, developed the program along with Dean, and will be a co-presenter.
In addition to the public program, Dean will be on campus throughout the day to share his experience with students and faculty at the law school.
“It is important that law students understand the historic implications of Watergate,” said C|M|LAW Dean Craig M. Boise. “We educate future lawyers to live their lives in justice, and through the ethics teaching that began after Watergate, we now help them build the highest level of professional integrity.”
The event is sponsored by Thompson Hine.

4 -5 pm National Urban Agriculture Policies: Challenges and Successes
As the movement towards local food continues to grow, cities are finding that they must develop law and policies to allow for and regulate agricultural practices within urban communities. Many cities are implementing policies to increase urban food production through regulation, incentives, and more comprehensive land-use and public-health policies. Cities are doing so because they recognize that increasing agricultural land use can be a good answer to declining populations and an excess of abandoned or foreclosed properties. Cities are also recognizing that increasing access to local food can provide economic and public health benefits. And, regions are realizing that increasing the connections between rural farmers and urban consumers can provide a synergistic relationship with economic benefits to the farmer, health benefits to the consumer, ecological benefits to the environment, and a more sustainable and secure food sources for the community.
This symposium will first discuss why local food benefits the community, and then will elucidate the laws and policies that Cleveland and other cities have implemented to increase local food production and access to local food. It will also address some of the benefits and challenges of implementing these policies. Finally, it will address the need to strengthen the urban, suburban, and rural food connection to move towards more sustainable and reliable local food production.
As part of the symposium, we will also have a lunch meeting where a smaller group, including the speakers and others who have a vested interest in the area of urban agricultural policy, can talk more freely about how other Cities can benefit from Cleveland’s success, and how Cleveland can learn from what other cities have done.
