Ag and Environmental Law Conference
UMD Agriculture Law Education Initiative


The University of Maryland’s Agriculture Law Education Initiative (ALEI) has recruited a dynamic panel of presenters to discuss the intersection of environmental regulation and agriculture in Maryland at the upcoming 2016 Agriculture and Environmental Law Conference. The conference is geared toward both the farming and environmental communities, including farmers, students, attorneys, regulators, agriculture professionals, environmental associations, and elected officials. ALEI hopes the conference will advance the dialogue about the system of environmental laws that affect farmers across Maryland. Some topics of discussion this year are water quality and the Chesapeake Bay, Food Safety and Modernization Act, and on-farm alternative energy production.

The conference will take place from 8 am to 4 pm on Friday, November 18th at the Doubletree Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland.
