Assessing Legal Issues for Farm and Ranch Women

This 2019 recording provides an overview of legal issues that are relevant to women-operated farms, and will help educators and service providers assess when to recommend that farmers or ranchers might need to seek legal advice. The session will cover issues related to land tenure, contracting, and legal liability including suggested legal resources for individuals handling sexual harassment claims on the farm. The session, originally delivered at the 2019 Women in Ag Programs for 21st Century Farms and Ranch Virtual Conference, also includes information on how to find attorneys who understand agricultural law and related issues.

Presenter: Erin Shirl Parker, J.D., LLM, Research Director and Staff Attorney at the Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative, University of Arkansas School of Law.
