The Vision of the University of Florida Agricultural Law Center is to develop, implement and maintain teaching and extension service activities which address law topics of importance to Florida's agricultural future.

The Center combines education in law and science to prepare students and agriculturists with timely and appropriate information for framing and putting into action environmentally sound, socially acceptable and economically feasible agricultural practices in the production of food and fiber.

Symptomatic of this cooperation is the promotion and development of a UF/IFAS-based Agricultural Law Center by Dr. Michael T. Olexa, an agricultural attorney in the Department of Food and Resource Economics. The Agricultural Law Center develops, implements, and maintains teaching and extension service activities on law topics of importance to Florida's agricultural future.

The Center combines education in law and science to prepare undergraduate and graduate students and agriculturists with information for framing and putting into action environmentally sound, socially acceptable and economically feasible agricultural practices in the production of food and fiber.

Outreach Education (Extension):
Through seminars, workshops, and publications, the center provides information on a wide range of legal topics related to agricultural production. Particularly popular are publications posted on the World Wide Web via the EDIS (Extension Digital Information Source) system. To address the needs of Florida's culturally diverse agricultural community, publications are also available in Spanish.
