Help us prepare students for the future.

Over the years UF/IFAS has developed the expertise, the experience and the knowledge base needed to implement an agricultural law center of world-class quality. In the 21st century we will be looking at new challenges and issues for Florida Agriculture such as water quality and supply, biotechnology, environmental impacts and audits, food safety, farm labor, growth management, tax laws, agricultural chemicals, sustainable agriculture, and international trade.  With your generous support we will be ready to prepare our students for the future.
