Farm to Table: Agriculture Law in the Era of Sustainability

All students, faculty, and staff are invited to join the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences as we partner with the Texas A&M Law Review to host a free simulcast of Farm to Table: Agriculture Law in the Era of Sustainability. The simulcast will be held on Friday, October 30 in the Agriculture and Life Sciences Building, Room 129 from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. Attendees are welcome to come and go; please see below for the schedule of events.
Featuring keynote speakers Dr. Mark Hussey of Texas A&M University and Professor James Chen of Michigan State University, the Symposium will facilitate scholarly discussion regarding the current legal framework for agriculture in the context of emerging sustainability issues (specifically related to water, infrastructure, crop development, and livestock).
The event’s theme is in keeping with Texas A&M’s institutional commitment to find solutions that:
  • feed our world,
  • protect our environment,
  • improve our health, and
  • grow the economy.
An expected outcome of the Symposium is to generate thoughtful policy discussion, and in time, proposals that favorably impact the current framework of agriculture law.
