Allen Olson Teaches Federal Farm Programs Class

Allen Olson is back with us teaching in the LL.M. Program as one of our condensed course professors.  He is teaching a course on Federal Farm Programs, and he teaches it with a real emphasis on what it's like to represent farmers, including those with large and small operations.

With over 30 years of experience as a practicing lawyer, much of it involved in representing farmers and agribusinesses, plus prior teaching experience in the LL.M. Program, we are always delighted to welcome Allen back to Fayetteville.

Allen received his B.A. from Cornell University in 1971, his J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law in 1974, and his LL.M. in Agricultural Law from the University of Arkansas School of Law in 1996. He has practiced law in Virginia, Nebraska and Georgia.

He is a past member of the Board of Directors of the American Agricultural Law Association and is a past Chair of the Agriculture Law Section of the Georgia State Bar. He is the author of numerous articles on agricultural law topics and is a frequent speaker at agricultural law conferences nationwide.

Allen has a law office in Albany, Georgia with a practice concentrated on agricultural law matters, including federal farm programs, payment limitations, USDA administrative appeals, crop insurance litigation, conservation easements, farm business planning, and other matters affecting farmers and related agricultural businesses.

This is the third year in a row that Allen has taught this course.  He has been warmly received by the LL.M. candidates and maintains contact with several of our alumni who are developing their practices.  We are grateful for his assistance and his expertise.
