2022 Pennsylvania Farm Show Agricultural Law Symposium
The symposium consists of four hours of educational webinars on current topics of importance in agricultural law presented by the Center’s legal staff.  Symposium sessions are free and open to the public and will be conducted via ZOOM on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, from 1:00 pm – 3:15 pm (EST) and on Thursday, January 13, 2022, from 1:00 pm – 3:15 pm (EST). 

The symposium’s first day focuses on bringing attendees fully up to date on 2021’s biggest agricultural law deadlines.  Our recap of 2021 will include a discussion of those cases that are now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.  In the second hour, we will be discussing some of 2022’s emerging issues in agricultural law: (a) the legal treatment in international trade of geographical indications from food names/labeling, particularly in the European Union; and (b) antitrust litigation, both civil and criminal, pending in the federal courts against the largest players in the beef, pork and poultry sectors.   

Day two will begin with a look at legal issues that arise from the diversification of farm income: (a) liability immunity for agritourism activities; (b) carbon contracts and markets; and (c) grid-scale solar project siting.  The symposium’s final hour will be devoted to up-to-date snapshots of seemingly ever-present but unresolved environmental issues which remain in litigation: (a) the legal disputes over dicamba registrations and chlorpyrifos use; (b) Chesapeake Bay progress and the role played by the Conowingo Dam; and (c) WOTUS, a topic which no ag law symposium will be able to avoid discussing for at least the foreseeable future.
