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.  We have a powerful lineup of presenters and topics over these two and a half days.  Our featured speakers include Anne Hazlett and Rebeckah Adcock from USDA, Ray Starling from the National Economic Council, and Ryan Quarles, the Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture.  The concurrent sessions and updates cover some of the important issues facing the food and agricultural industries, including a panel of experts to talk about the upcoming Farm Bill and other key policy initiatives.AALA will be offering tracks focused on needs of agricultural law practitioners including in-house and corporate counsel, probate and estate planning, small and rural practitioners, food law attorneys, and policy counsel. You will have opportunities to meet and connect with over 250 attendees from across the country.  With over 30 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!
