Dean Kathryn Rand attended the hearing of the State Bar Association's Justice System Energy Impact Task Force at the Williams County Courthouse in Williston on June 26. The Williston hearing was the third in a series of hearings intended to gather information from attorneys, judges, public employees, and others concerning needs related to the administration of justice in areas of the state most impacted by energy development. The SBAND Justice System Energy Impact Task Force will collect information concerning the justice system needs of the public, attorneys, state and local governments, and the courts in energy-impacted areas of North Dakota. As an effective , efficient, and responsive justice system is a vital part of the infrastructure necessary to support and sustain energy development, the information gathered by the Task Force will be analyzed in a forthcoming report.
