Agriculture and the Law: Why It Matters

Agriculture is vital to the economic health of Maryland and the well being of its residents.

A new collaboration among three distinguished Maryland universities—the Agriculture Law  Education Initiative—is committed to providing Maryland farmers with the information they need to prosper while complying with the complex network of laws and policies protecting the integrity of the state's food system and environment.

A new collaboration between the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, the University of Maryland College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore School of Agricultural and Natural Sciences.
