College of Agriculture and Life Sciences faculty member Theodore A. Feitshans has been confirmed as president of the American Agricultural Law Association. Feitshans is a lecturer and Extension specialist in agricultural and environmental law in the CALS Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. He was confirmed in September to begin his one-year term as president of the AALA during the organization’s annual meeting, held in Williamsburg, Va.

With more than 600 members, the AALA is the only national professional organization focusing on the legal needs of the agricultural community. Crossing traditional barriers, it offers an independent forum for discussion of innovative and workable solutions to complex agricultural law problems by attorneys and others employed in the private sector, government and academia. Membership includes both attorneys and non-attorneys with an interest in agricultural law. Student participation in annual conferences is strongly encouraged through scholarships.
