FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — What major issues are bubbling under the surface in agricultural and environmental law? Find out during a bonus online session of the Mid-South Agricultural and Environmental Law Conference.
Participants can join the bonus session by registering for the conference by the May 22 early bird deadline.
The bonus session will air online May 24 at 11 a.m. and provide two hours of continuing legal education, or CLEs.
Presenters for the first hour will include Ross Pifer, director of the Penn State Law Center for Agricultural & Shale Law, as well as National Agricultural Law Center Staff Attorneys Brigit Rollins, Elizabeth Rumley and Rusty Rumley.
The other hour of the bonus session will feature attorney Brandon Davis, a partner at Phelps Dunbar LLP, who will be discussing agricultural labor and immigration law.
Elizabeth Rumley, senior staff attorney at the National Agricultural Law Center, said the online bonus session will offer an opportunity to learn about the biggest issues facing agricultural and environmental law.
“The speakers for this session have decades of experience working in agricultural law,” Harrison Pittman, director of the National Agricultural Law Center, said. “With their experience and expertise, their session will allow attendees to position their legal, financial or farming business so that it is ready to handle these new issues and take advantage of emerging opportunities. This session will be held in conjunction with the ninth annual Mid-South Agricultural and Environmental Law Conference.
The main conference, hosted by the National Agricultural Law Center, will be held on June 10 via livestream or in person in Memphis, Tennessee. It will feature other topics such as the foreign ownership of agricultural land, the future of dicamba and other crop protection products, and a look forward to the writing of the next Farm Bill.
