Welcome to the Agricultural Law Extension Program

Today's agriculture requires taking into considering an ever changing series of laws and how those laws will impact your current operation.  Understanding these impacts and working with an attorney before hand can potentially limit future lawsuits or enforcement proceedings.

This page is dedicated to providing the ag community with current information on the agricultural law Extension outreach efforts in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics.  For more detailed information on the Agriculture Law Education Intiative, please see

Note: This website is intended to provide general information about legal issues  and should not be construed as providing legal advice. It should not be cited or relied upon as legal authority. For advice about how the issues discussed here might apply to your individual situation, you should consult an attorney.
