2017 Annual Educational Symposium


AALA will host its 38th Annual Agricultural Law Symposium on October 26-28, 2017 in Louisville, KY at the Seelbach Louisville Hilton.


Planning for the 2017 AALA Annual Symposium in Louisville is underway, and we are excited about the opportunities ahead as plans are made and programs suggested.  For those thinking about submitting ideas for sessions in Louisville, the Request for Proposals (RFP) is available here.  Please submit your response to the RFP via email to jennifer.zwagerman@drake.edu by February  24.


Our Symposium will once again host national and regional legal and policy experts who will address cutting edge issues in agriculture, natural resources, water, food, environmental and agribusiness law. You will have opportunities to meet and connect with over 250 attendees from across the country.  With over 30 breakout sessions, attorneys typically receive between 12-14 hours of CLE credit that have been reported in over 30 states.


AALA will again incorporate law student engagement, present its annual awards and continue to build on our organization’s mission which focuses on the legal needs of the agricultural community.


We look forward to seeing you in Louisville in 2017!
