FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — An April 5 webinar will be all about the future for a one-of-a-kind
institution that has served public, private, legal and other agricultural and food
industry professionals for nearly 40 years.
Congress established the National Agricultural Law Center in 1987 to serve as a nonpartisan,
objective resource for the nation’s agricultural community. Today, it is the only
institution of its kind in the United States with partners throughout the country,
serving stakeholders at all levels of the agriculture and food supply chain.
NALC Director Harrison Pittman will discuss the future of the NALC in a webinar on
Wednesday, April 5. The webinar, “Expanding Partners and Outreach: Strategic Update
on the Future of the National Agricultural Law Center,” will begin at 11 a.m. CDT.
Registration is free of charge online.
“The NALC has grown considerably in recent years, with a key strategic goal of expanding
public and private sector partnerships and outreach throughout the United States,”
Pittman will discuss the NALC’s recent expansion efforts including the inaugural Western Agricultural and Environmental Law Conference, establishment of regional advisory boards such as the newly formed Western Ag Industry Advisory Board, establishment of agricultural law scholarships and student-focused efforts such
as the NALC Bridges Initiative.
“The purpose of this webinar is to provide a strategic update on the NALC and invite
state agriculture departments, commodity and trade organizations, Cooperative Extension
Service professionals, student organizations, law firms, law schools and other interested
individuals and entities to collaborate and partner with us,” Pittman said. “As the
nation’s leading source of agricultural and food law research and information, it
is a tremendous priority for the NALC to continue expanding its partners and outreach.”
“There is much to be excited about with the future of the NALC,” Pittman said. “We
are in a time of exponential growth and look forward to sharing this update on what’s
in store for the future.”
