Geosyntec and LMU Law School Host Symposium on Recent Wildfires
« All Publications

The symposium will address legal matters, problems, concerns, and questions that the community is dealing with while trying to rebuild. The symposium was put together as a result of the wild fires that spread throughout the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Gatlinburg back in November of 2016. One of the desired goals is to examine the devastating effects of the wildfires.  

The list of speakers invited speakers includes: Judge Gary Wade, LMU Law dean; Geosyntec consultants Julia Caprio and Duane Graves; attorneys Sid Gilreath, Dean Howell and Catherine Anglin; Great Smoky Mountains National Park Deputy Superintendent Clay Jordan and GSMNP Spokesperson Dana Soehn; Michael Harding, a nationally recognized post-fire response expert; Dollywood President Craig Ross and Dollywood Foundation President David Dotson; Sevier County Emergency Management Director John Mathews and Mayor Larry Waters; Knoxville News Sentinel Editor Jack McElroy; and Legal Aid of East Tennessee President Sheri Fox.
