Ag Law! Not just for Clemson Grads

Attn; trial lawyers, the American Agricultural Law Association’s Annual Education Symposium will  be in Charleston on October 21-23. In the past students primarily from midwestern law schools, such as University of Arkansas, Ohio State University, Oklahoma State, Nebraska and Drake have participated but we can change that! AALS’s home base is in Columbia, SC and their Executive Director is a USC grad!

If you want to learn more about Agricultural Law or Food Law, they have a very diverse agenda.  The keynote speaker Bill Marler is a nationally recognized litigator of foodborne illness and advocate of food safety which may be of interest to future trial attorneys and policy makers.
