The Rural Law Virtual Conference

Sponsors & Exhibitors



With much uncertainty on a variety of fronts being faced by Scottish agriculture, this timely conference provides rural law practitioners with an essential update on current issues and some solutions to consider.

Under a backdrop of Brexit, Covid-19 and limited finances, how can the objectives of agricultural policy be met?  What are the practical issues thrown up by the tenant’s amnesty period?  How will recent cases affect your advice?  What considerations do you need to take into account when dealing with contract or share farming agreements?  What are the specialities to consider in forestry transactions?

Chaired by leading rural lawyer Hamish Lean, we look forward to welcoming you to this important virtual conference to get the answers to these questions and more!
