Agricultural policy, tax planning, farmland leases and wetlands are just some of the issues focused on at the Ohio Agricultural Law Symposium on Friday, Sept. 19, at Ohio State University.

The program is designed for lawyers who have agricultural clients or an interest in agriculture, said Peggy Hall, director of Ohio State's Agricultural and Resource Law Program which is cosponsoring the event with the Ohio State Bar Association Agricultural Law Committee. The Agricultural and Resource Law Program provides legal research and outreach on agricultural and rural issues for Ohio State University Extension.

During the day-long program, Justice Paul E. Pfeifer will give an update on the Supreme Court of Ohio, and Harrison M. Pittman, director of the National Agricultural Law Center at the University of Arkansas will discuss "Legal Issues Facing Today's Agriculture."

Other topics to be addressed are:

Legal and Policy Issues at the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Tax Planning for the Retiring Farmer.

Current Challenges with Farmland Leases.

Wetlands and Water Quality: Implications for Agriculture.

The symposium will be held on Ohio State's campus at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Drive, north of Lane Avenue just east of Rt. 315. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the program concludes at 4:30 p.m.

The program offers 6 hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits. Registration fees range from $125 to $338, with discounts for preregistration and groups from the same firm, and for new lawyers, government attorneys and members of the Ohio State Bar Association. Lunch is provided. Scholarships are available for students through the university's Paul L. Wright Chair Fund in Agricultural Law by contacting Hall at (614) 247-7898 or aglaw@osu.edu .
