The Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Agricultural Law Section chair, Professor Anthony Schutz identified two related goals for the 2009 AALS Agricultural Law section session: (1) To consider the pedagogical and scholarly value of agricultural law, and (2) To identify what belongs in the canon of agricultural law. This article defines agricultural law in the context of the contemporary law school curriculum, considering the particularly relevancy of consumers' increasing interest in food. It concludes with suggestions for those interested in teaching in this dynamic area.
