INDIANAPOLIS, WEST LAFAYETTE -

The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis and Purdue University are collaborating on a new agriculture law program. Amy Cornell will lead the organizational efforts, including selecting a steering committee. The process of building the program is expected to take two years and involve determining the needs of the market, employers and students.

IU McKinney Dean Andrew Klein says "I am excited about the opportunity to build programming in the area of agriculture law. We are well-positioned to do so, given our location in the heart of the Midwest and the strong support we have received from Indiana's leaders in the legislature. I look forward to collaborating with our colleagues at the Purdue University College of Agriculture, and I am delighted that Amy Cornell will lead our efforts."

Purdue College of Agriculture Interim Dean Karen Plaut says ag law involves "a distinctive set of skills" and will help fill a critical need. The field, she adds, requires in-depth knowledge about what is occurring in industry, research and fields across our state, country and the world. We look forward to this collaboration to build a program that utilizes the impressive strengths of IU McKinney and Purdue Agriculture."

Cornell experience includes time as policy advisor and counsel for the Indiana Farm Bureau, as well as vice president and of counsel to the agribusiness group at the government relations and strategic communications firm of Bose Public Affairs Group.
