    Texas A&M Law Review Presents:

    Farm to Table: Agriculture Law in the Era of Sustainability

    Friday, October 30, 2015

    Texas A&M University School of Law Conference Center



    The Texas A&M Law Review is pleased to announce our fall 2015 symposium entitled:  Farm to Table:  Agriculture Law in the Era of Sustainability.  As Aggies are well aware, Texas A&M is committed to finding solutions to feed our world, protect our environment, improve our health, and grow the economy.  The Law Review and the Texas A&M School of Law are committed to this mission and the exploration of law and agriculture through this Symposium.

    The symposium will facilitate scholarly discussion regarding the current legal framework for agriculture and address specific questions such as whether that framework is equipped to handle emerging sustainability issues related to water, infrastructure, crop development, and livestock.  Our goal is to host a symposium that will result in proposals which ensure the current legal framework conforms with emerging sustainability trends in the broad area of agriculture law.  We are pleased that Dr. Mark Hussey of Texas A&M University and Professor James Chen of Michigan State University will be joining us as keynote speakers.  The symposium will feature panels focusing on critical legal issues facing farm and ranch land sustainability, the future of crop and food sustainability, and sustainable animal agriculture.

    The Texas Aggie Bar Association is soliciting ideas for other programs, events, and benefits that TABA can offer to its members consistent with its charitable purposes.  TABA remains a charitable organization with the charitable goals of supporting through scholarship Aggies who are beginning law school as well as networking with fellow Aggie lawyers. TABA already hosts its Annual Tailgate;  Annual Social, Annual Conference, and Annual Banquet; Howdy Hours; and other networking functions throughout the year.  TABA also recognizes Aggie lawyers through its annual Aggie Lawyer of the Year award and supports Aggies entering law school with its annual scholarships.  Of course, we are an all volunteer organization with limited resources so we have to carefully consider the demand any potential program, event or benefit would have on our resources. Accordingly, not every idea can be implemented. Please send your ideas to Ken Krock, President, TABA at  TABA's Board will meet for a day long planning session in late June to consider your ideas. Gig 'em!!
