Introducing Amy Broadmoore

Agricultural montageMy name is Amy Broadmoore, and I am a 3rd year law student at the University of Minnesota. I have a M.S. degree in Ecology from the University of Minnesota and a B.A. degree in Biology from Grinnell College. After graduating from law school, I plan to work in the areas of agricultural and environmental law.

This semester I will be studying agricultural law under the direction of Professor Jim Chen. I plan to post essays and comments, inspired by the material that I read for this independent study course. The essays and comments will cover a variety of agricultural law topics including federal price support programs, farm business planning, antitrust issues in agriculture, environmental regulation of agriculture, agricultural zoning, and agricultural labor law.

Welcome to the blog! As a fellow Minnesotan who learned ag law at the University of MN School of Law (in the pre-Jim Chen days of Gerald Torres, now at Texas), I am delighted to hear of your interest and to read your comments on the blog.
Do consider taking a year to come and study with us here in Arkansas where we offer the nation's only LL.M. in Agricultural Law!
Also, on your definition of farming, if you have not already, you might consider the Supreme Court opinion in Holly Farms (116 S. Ct. 1396) where a sharply divided court attempted to figure out where farming ends and processing begins for purposes of ag labor exemptions.
