The National Agricultural Law Center is hosting a series of free producer workshops throughout Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi focusing on legal and policy issues relevant to row crop producers.  The workshops will focus on farm bill reauthorization, federal crop insurance, environmental regulation, and other topics of interest to producers.

The producer workshops are sponsored with generous support from the Banks Law Firm, PLLC.  Headquarted in Little Rock, Arkansas, Banks Law Firm, PLLC focuses in the areas of plaintiffs’ damage claims, commercial disputes, agricultural law, and white collar criminal defense.  The gift was provided by Banks Law Firm, PLLC to provide a legal educational series for producers and to help publicize the 25th Anniversary of the National Agricultural Law Center, a unit of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.
