FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- The farm bill, agricultural leases, lawsuits hypoxia in the
gulf and right-to-farm issues are among the topics on the agenda for the first annual
Mid-South Agricultural and Environmental Law Conference set for May 16 in Tunica,
The daylong conference, hosted by the Arkansas Bar Association, the National Sea Grant
Law Center at the University of Mississippi School of Law and the National Agricultural
Law Center of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, will be held
at the Harrah’s Casino Conference Center.
"This is the first conference of its kind, and is in direct response to requests we’ve
received to provide legal research and information specific to Mid-South agriculture,”
said Harrison Pittman, director of the National Agricultural Law Center. “Farming
in the Mid-South has its own unique legal and policy aspects. This conference is meant
to address those, and we’ve got a top-flight lineup of experts to speak on the topics.”
The conference is aimed at attorneys, policymakers, lenders, landowners and others
involved in agriculture and affiliated fields.
“Many attorneys, particularly those in rural areas, represent agricultural interests
in different ways, but don’t necessarily consider themselves to be ‘agricultural lawyers,’”
Pittman said. “This program is intended to provide relevant information and networking
opportunities directly to them.”
This program has been approved for 6.0 hours of CLE credit, including one hour of
ethics, in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. For attorneys seeking credit in
other states, conference hosts will provide necessary information to the attorney
so that they may apply for CLE credit.
Topic and Speakers:
The full agenda for this conference is available on the Arkansas Bar Association website,
www.arkbar.com. The topics and speakers are:
The registration fee for Arkansas Bar Association members, non-Arkansas attorneys,
and non-attorneys, if paid online by May 9 is $270. If paid by mail or fax by May
9, it’s $290. Onsite registration is $305. For Arkansas attorneys who are not bar
association members, the registration is $340. Fee for students is $35.
