Rural Lands, Rural Livelihoods Class Feb. 6-8

Our good friend, Professor Neil Hamilton will be back in Fayetteville next week to teach his condensed course, Rural Lands, Rural Livelihoods.

Professor Hamilton is the Dwight D. Opperman Chair of Law at the Drake University School of Law in Des Moines, Iowa and also serves as the Director of the Drake Agricultural Law Center. He is a well recognized leader in the study of agricultural law and its part in our food system and is a regular visiting professor in the LL.M. Program.

Rural Lands, Rural Livelihoods will involve the study of a variety of rural economic development initiatives, including the legal issues surrounding the rapidly expanding wind energy industry.

Given Professor Hamilton's close connection with USDA Secretary Vilsack and Professor Hamilton's attendance at the recent climate change summit in Copenhagen, the course will involve a host of current issues.
