The Agricultural Law Section was formed in recognition of Fresno County's status as the premiere agricultural region of the United States. The Section's goal is to inform local attorneys (and other interested persons) about current issues affecting agribusiness. Therefore, speakers and topics sometimes have more of an industry focus than a pure legal focus. Topics covered in 20052006 included updates on water quality issues (such as the ag waiver discharge), the Farm Program, agricultural land values, farm labor, marketing orders, the Williamson Act and the San Joaquin River Litigation. Breakfast meetings at the Ramada Inn are generally held on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 7 a.m. All section meetings qualify for one hour of MCLE credit.
