Ag Technology & The Law: Advancing American Agriculture
August 15 - August 16
The future of American agriculture is being and will be defined by rapidly emerging technologies – big data, gene editing of plants and animals, new crop protection products, rural broadband, to name a few – that apply throughout the agricultural sector. These technologies present many private and public sector opportunities and challenges, and raise novel legal and policy questions that must be dealt with at the state and federal levels. Recognizing the importance of these issues to the future of American agriculture, the National Agricultural Law Center, the National Association of Attorneys General, and Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge are co-hosting Ag Technology & The Law: Advancing American Agriculture. The conference will bring together industry and legal experts from across the nation for a 2-day program tailored to public and private sector attorneys, industry members, students, and other professionals with an interest in legal and policy issues associated with agricultural technology. This conference will feature 12 hours of continuing legal education, including two hours of ethics.
