Jason Conder to Discuss PFAS at the LACBA Environmental Law Symposium

Jason Conder (California) will join a panel discussion at the Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA), Environmental Law Section's 32nd Annual Environmental Law Spring Super Symposium on April 13, 2018.

Jason will contribute to the panel entitled "PFAS: Not Your Typical Emerging Contaminant." Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are a family of chemicals that are persistent in the environment and bioaccumulative in wildlife and humans, resulting in widespread and global exposure. This panel will discuss the unique chemical and toxicological properties of PFAS, uses and sources of PFAS to the environment, the increasing regulatory scrutiny placed upon these chemicals, the current status of regulation, and the litigation that has occurred and is expected to result from the prevalence of these chemicals.

Jason Conder is a Senior Scientist based in California with more than 10 years of experience focused on risk assessment and contaminated sediments in contaminated site assessment and management, environmental toxicology, and ecological and human health risk assessment.

LACBA was founded in 1878 and is one of the largest voluntary metropolitan bar associations in the country, with over 20,000 members. LACBA serves attorneys, judges, and other legal professionals through 26 sections, committees, networking events, live and on-demand CLE programs, and pro bono opportunities, as well as public service and informational resources.
