Indiana University School of Law- New Ag Law Program

Gary Truitt reported today at Hoosier Ag Today Online that, “The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, in cooperation with Purdue University, is launching a program in agriculture law. Amy Cornell, a 2006 graduate of IU McKinney and a graduate of Purdue University, has been retained as a consultant and will assemble a steering committee to build the program.

“‘I am excited about the opportunity to build programming in the area of agriculture law,’ said IU McKinney Dean Andrew R. Klein. ‘We are well-positioned to do so, given our location in the heart of the Midwest and the strong support we have received from Indiana‚Äôs leaders in the legislature. I look forward to collaborating with our colleagues at the Purdue University College of Agriculture, and I am delighted that Amy Cornell will lead our efforts.'”

Today’s update indicated that, “Karen Plaut, interim dean of the Purdue University College of Agriculture, said that this collaboration will meet a critical need: ‘The area of agriculture law requires a distinctive set of skills as well as in-depth knowledge about what is occurring in industry, research and fields across our state, country and the world,’ she said. ‘We look forward to this collaboration to build a program that utilizes the impressive strengths of IU McKinney and Purdue Agriculture.'”
