Phil Kunkel Returns to Teach Contracting Class
Philip Kunkel of the law firm of Gray Plant Mooty based in Minnesota, will be returning next month to teach his popular course, Field to Table: The Use (and Occasional Abuse) of Marketing Contracts and Production Contracts in Agriculture. Phil's knowledge and experience in the area of agricultural contracting is unsurpassed, and in this course he integrates caselaw, regulatory law, and policy with real world examples of contracting disputes. Included in the course materials are examples of contracts used in a variety of agricultural sectors, from hog production to grapes for wine production, as well as selected comments to the proposed new GIPSA rules. The course is a perfect follow-up to our Regulation of Livestock Sales class taught by Vince Chadick in the Fall.
