The University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s joint effort to aid farmers

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore has joined together with other Maryland colleges to form the Maryland Agricultural Law Education initiative. Along with the University of Maryland in College Park and the University of Maryland in Baltimore, the new initiative will focus on the legal needs of the state’s farm communities and how to assist in having those needs met.

There are approximately 12,800 farmers in Maryland. Among the issues that the initiative will focus on are environmental compliance, regulatory matters, estate planning, and crop insurance.
