10th Annual Mid-South Agricultural and Environmental Law Conference

Hosted by the National Agricultural Law Center

June 8-9, 2023

Memphis, Tennessee

University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law


Agriculture in the Mid-South is uniquely impacted by changes and developments in state, federal, and international laws and policies.  This program is part of a long-term effort to provide relevant and timely agricultural and environmental legal research and information to attorneys, lenders, accountants, tax consultants, students and other agricultural professionals involved in the agricultural industries in the southern U.S.   The goal is to provide resources in the form of presentations and content, as well as to foster dialogue about the range of agricultural, food, and environmental law issues for the Mid-South agricultural community.

This conference will take place in person in Memphis, Tennessee, but will also be live-streamed online for attendees who are unable to attend in person.  It will feature 6 hours of continuing education, including an hour of ethics.  Further, for participants who register by May 23rd, 3 “bonus hours” of online continuing education will also be included.  More information on continuing education credit is available below.

Registration includes a complimentary one-month subscription to Agri-Pulse. For more information about what is included, click here.
