Agricultural Law Information Partnership
Welcome to the Agricultural Law Information Partnership
The Agricultural Law Information Partnership is a collaboration between the National Agricultural Library, National Agricultural Law Center (NALC) and the Center for Agriculture and Food Systems (CAFS) at Vermont Law School. The Partnership supports the dissemination of agricultural and food law information to consumers, researchers and legal professionals. Agricultural law is defined broadly to include land-based agriculture, food and fiber production and systems, aquaculture and energy issues.
Our partners produce a range of tools and guides on agricultural and environmental legal research. Key audiences include attorneys, agricultural professionals, and the general public involved in agricultural industries in the United States. Recent projects are listed below.
