Agriculture Law, Environmental Law and Energy Law
Agriculture Law focuses on laws related to the production and commerce of farm products in all its forms.
Environmental Law concerns regulating the potential risks to human health, soil, water, air, ecosystem processes, and wildlife and fish arising from human activity, particularly farming, forestry or industrial use of land.
Energy Law addresses two broad categories of discussion, the legal principles concerning the exploration for, access to, and the production of energy, and how our legal system regulates the provision and distribution of the energy needed for agricultural and forestry operations.
