The American Agricultural Law Association (AALA) will host its 38th Annual Agricultural Law Symposium on October 26-28, 2017 in Louisville, KY at the Seelbach Louisville Hilton. In conjunction with the conference, AALA will host a variety of law student events, including a poster competition and a quiz bowl contest.

The AALA Law Student Poster Contest is an opportunity for students interested in agricultural law to demonstrate their understanding of an agricultural law topic and their ability to relate that understanding to an audience of professionals from private practice, governmental agencies, and academia. This year, the Contest will involve an abstract of the poster, a video presentation of the poster’s content, and an interactive display of the poster during the one of the AALA Annual Symposium’s receptions. Posters must be submitted by October 2, 2017.

The AALA Quiz Bowl Contest allows student to demonstrate their knowledge of topics relevant to agricultural law and the law in general, as well as the agricultural industry and agricultural policy. Contestants will compete in teams of three in timed rounds through a quiz show format in a single-elimination tournament. Quiz Bowl contestants must register by October 2, 2017.
