The oil has finally stopped flowing, but for many, the work has just begun.

In an attempt to wade through the sticky aftermath of the Gulf Coast disaster, UF faculty members and students will present an analysis of the legal structures governing the follow-up decisions at a symposium outlining the legal basis for responding to the oil spill. Six UF Law faculty members, one UF sociology faculty member, and six UF Law students will participate in the event, which will take place Thursday, Sept. 16, at 4 p.m. in the University of Florida Levin College of Law’s Martin H. Levin Legal Advocacy Center.

“We are in the initial stages of developing a legal framework for examining the law and policy issues that will be discussed throughout the region in the coming months and even years,” said UF Law Center for Governmental Responsibility Director Jon Mills. Mills, who is chair of UF Law’s Oil Spill Working Group, said the legal researchers are working with natural and social scientists to analyze many different issues including current legislation, commission responses, recovery issues and the claims process.

The symposium is open to the public and is sponsored by the UF Law Oil Spill Working Group, Center for Governmental Responsibility and UF Law Environmental and Land Use Law Program.
