Sixth Annual Mid-South Agricultural and Environmental Law Conference

Hosted by the National Agricultural Law Center

June 6-7, 2019

Memphis, Tennessee

Agriculture in the Mid-South is uniquely impacted by changes and developments in state, federal, and international laws and policies.  This program is part of a long-term effort to provide relevant and timely agricultural and environmental legal research and information to attorneys, lenders, accountants, tax consultants, students and other agricultural professionals involved in the agriculture and aquaculture industries in the southern U.S.   The goal is to provide resources in the form of presentations and content, as well as to foster dialogue about the range of agricultural, food, and aquaculture issues for the Mid-South agricultural community.  This conference will feature 6 hours of continuing education, including an hour of ethics.  Further, for participants who register before May 14th, 2 “bonus hours” of online continuing education will also be included.

The conference will be held on June 6-7 in Memphis, TN.  On the evening of the 6th, we will be holding our annual “Beer & BBQ” dinner reception at the Rendezvous from 6:30-8:30 pm.  The conference itself will be held at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law on June 7th, with registration opening at 7:30am and the CLE itself beginning at 8am.  For more information, or to register for the program, please click here.
