The 6th Annual Wildland Fire Litigation Conference takes place this year at the Woodlake Hotel in Sacramento, CA (formerly the Radisson) on April 20-22, 2012. The Conference presents a good bridge between the real world of litigation where forensic and specific fire scientists endeavor to prove the actual causes and origins of wildfires and the more theoretical evaluations of thoughtful academics. Each world needs to know more about what the other is thinking and doing. Large policy issues have a different life than lawsuits. Academics from UC Berkeley (2) and Texas AandM (1) will make presentations.
