Agricultural Management


Welcome to the Agricultural Management Committee



Agricultural management law is rapidly evolving, as the Trump administration rolls back rules (or tries to do so), and farm producers struggle against environmental challenges from climate change, dead zones, protection of species, and other challenges facing food production in the 21st Century. Our Committee has served, since 1996, as a network and forum for lawyers interested in this dynamic field.

We welcome lawyers, environmental consultants, students, academics, policymakers, and others, with all levels of experience, from across sectors and perspectives. Our goal is to keep members apprised of the latest legal developments through timely and informative communications and programs, and we work with other SEER committees to develop coordinated content highlighting the importance of air quality issues. We welcome your input and encourage you to submit articles for the Committee newsletter; suggest topics for conferences or webinars; send us key agency and court decisions, policy documents, or briefs on agricultural management issues; and actively participate in social media.

The Agricultural Management Committee focuses on developments in federal and state legislation, regulation, contracts, litigation and policy. Topics include the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, developments in agricultural biotechnology, livestock and grain issues, sustainability, food safety, and farm data privacy. We have taken the lead within SEER on ag tech issues, from GMOS to drones. Our Committee is made up of diverse members from various legal occupations, including in house counsel at large and small agribusiness companies, private practice attorneys from solo practitioners to partners in the nation’s largest firms, law students and professors with interest in agriculture, non-governmental organization attorneys, and government officials working in and regulating agriculture.
