Attention to all you agricultural attorneys out there!
The American Agricultural Law Association will be holding our annual AALA symposium in Albuquerque, New Mexico, October 19-21, 2014. I’ve been attending this CLE for 5 years now and always find it very informative and a great opportunity to meet with ag attorneys from across the country.
I am a member of the planning committee and can tell you that there are great sessions and presenters planned for the program, including topics like The 2014 Farm Bill, Water Law Hot Topics, Emerging Issues for Surface Landowners During the Drilling Boom, Crop Insurance 101, Labor Law Enforcement Down on the Farm, Fracking, Food Safety, Pesticide Drift, and much more. Check out the complete program here.
Additionally, I will be speaking on a panel moderated by Peggy Kirk-Hall (Ohio State University), along with practicing attorneys Tim Kelleher (California) and Brent Haden (Missouri) on drafting and negotiating agricultural leases.

See you in New Mexico. I’ll be the one stuffing my face with green chile at every meal.
