Created by Congress in 1987 and housed at the University of Arkansas School of Law, the National Agricultural Law Center is an extensive resource for information relating to agricultural and food law. Its site features The National AgLaw Reporter, covering judicial developments, federal rules and administrative developments, and decisions from the USDA judicial officer. The site’s Reading Rooms – organized by topics such as Animal Feeding Operations, Clean Water Act, Biotechnology, Food Safety, Farm Programs and Farm Labor – provide links to current electronic resources, including laws, cases and articles. Other features include a glossary of agricultural programs and policy, links to agricultural and food law activities in Congress, and information on the nation’s farm bills from 1938 to the present.
