After a year full of pivotal legal developments, the National Agricultural Law Center will give 2020 the retrospective it deserves, with a webinar discussing the year’s top 10 ag and food legal issues as determined by center staff.
The hour-long webinar will feature Center Director Harrison Pittman, and Brigit Rollins, Center Staff Attorney, discussing major events including dicamba decisions, the National Environmental Policy Act and changes to the Waters of the United States regulations, as well as their potential impacts in the long- and short-term.
“2020 has been a year without precedent for agricultural law,” Pittman said. “We’ve seen a global pandemic affecting food production and distribution, landmark Supreme Court decisions, developments in checkoff litigation, and so much more.
“We hope to put all of these issues in perspective as we move into the end of the year and look forward, to what we hope, will be a less turbulent year in 2021,” he said.
The webinar is scheduled for November 18 at noon EST/11 a.m. CST. Those interested can register free of charge here.
