Any number of legal issues impact agriculture every day, and that includes national developments in the areas of negligence, premises liability, products liability, nuisance and trespass among others. Keeping informed and updated is always wise, but a challenge.

On April 16, Iowa State University’s Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation (CALT) will present a webinar called, “Dairies, Dogs, and Duties: Civil Liabilities Arising in Agricultural Law.” It will run from Noon to 1:00 p.m. Central Time.

While the webinar is particularly beneficial to attorneys specializing in agriculture, producers, agribusinesses and other related ag professionals can participate.

Erika Eckley, a staff attorney at CALT, will provide tips and insights for lawyers into how to evaluate and prepare damage claims in the agricultural context, and insight as to how trial court judges evaluate evidence and handle procedural issues. She also will look at legal developments in civil liabilities in Iowa.

The registration fee is $35 per individual and can be made here. You will find the link on the right side of the web page.

Any materials related to the webinar, as well as instructions on joining the event on April 16, will be sent via e-mail a few days prior to the event.

CALT provides timely, critically objective information to producers, professionals and agribusinesses concerning the application of important developments in agricultural law and taxation (federal and state legal opinions of relevance, as well as critical legislative developments), and is a primary source of professional educational training in agricultural law and taxation.
