Never For-Gatt: What Recent Tbt Decisions Reveal About The Appellate Body’S Analysis Of Environmental Regulation Under The Wto Agreements, Ravi Soopramanien 2017 American University Washington College of Law

Never For-Gatt: What Recent Tbt Decisions Reveal About The Appellate Body’S Analysis Of Environmental Regulation Under The Wto Agreements, Ravi Soopramanien

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

Few environmentalists have positive things to say on the impact of the World Trade Organization (WTO) on the environment. WTO legal obligations are frequently cited as the most significant impediment to a range of environmental initiatives, including notably meaningful international coordination to combat climate change, particularly through carbon tax initiatives, and imposition of electronic waste disposal export bans. In this vein, adverse findings of WTO dispute panels on environmental conservation measures tend to attract the ire of international civil society. The tensions between liberal trade and environmental protection can be traced back to the days of the General Agreement on ...

Writing (And Living) A Succession Plan, Neil E. Harl 2017 Iowa State University

Writing (And Living) A Succession Plan, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

A half century ago, with land values hovering around $500 to $1,000 per acre, there was little talk of succession plans. The sons (and daughters) with farming in mind would usually strike out on their own and rent a half section (if they were lucky) and forge an agreement with the parents to use their equipment. In my case, after I fulfilled my military commitments, the half section I wanted to rent was suddenly unavailable because of the landlord’s conclusion that I posed too great a risk

"Fowl" Practice Of Humane Labeling: Proposed Amendments To Federal Standards Governing Chicken Welfare And Poultry Labeling Practices, LaTravia Smith 2017 Florida A&M University College of Law

"Fowl" Practice Of Humane Labeling: Proposed Amendments To Federal Standards Governing Chicken Welfare And Poultry Labeling Practices, Latravia Smith

Alumni Works

Chickens raised specifically for meat production are the world’s most intensively farmed land animals. Yet, the existing legal frameworks that regulate the production and labeling of poultry products in the United States allow poultry producers to mistreat chickens, falsely distinguish poultry products, and defraud conscious consumers. This article proposes unique opportunities to improve poultry welfare in the United States’ agricultural industry and offers methods to ensure the accurate labeling of poultry products.


The Intricacies Of Income-In-Respect-Of Decedent, Neil E. Harl 2017 Iowa State University

The Intricacies Of Income-In-Respect-Of Decedent, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Property held until death ordinarily is entitled to a new income tax basis, determined as of the date of death of the owner.1 However, property defined as “income-in-respect-of-decedent” at the death of the property owner is not eligible to receive a new income tax basis as of the death of the owner of the property.2 With the run-up in property values in recent years, the result can be a sharp difference in future income tax liability, depending upon the classification of the property at death. Without much doubt, the federal income tax provisions (as well as state income ...

Adapting To The Changing World Of Biotechnology: Syngenta Ag Mir162 Corn Litigation As Regulation By Litigation, Paul Goeringer 2017 Texas A&M University School of Law

Adapting To The Changing World Of Biotechnology: Syngenta Ag Mir162 Corn Litigation As Regulation By Litigation, Paul Goeringer

Texas A&M Law Review

Agriculture has relied on plant breeding to improve genetics since the first domestication of agricultural plants 10,000 years ago. More recently, Gregor Mendel and his hybridization experiments on peas led to what we know as modern genetics. The rise in recombinantDNA technology has opened up many possibilities in plant breeding, including Roundup Ready technology and crop varieties designed to resist a number of pests. At the same time, governments and the private sector have sought to institute regulations for handling the releases of new biotechnology to ensure the technologies will have limited environmental impacts and provide safe foods to ...


Recognizing Challenges And Opportunities In The Quest To End Hunger, Jennifer Williams Zwagerman 2017 Texas A&M University School of Law

Recognizing Challenges And Opportunities In The Quest To End Hunger, Jennifer Williams Zwagerman

Texas A&M Law Review

As an attorney and professor that does not focus on intellectual property law, I was a bit apprehensive about providing a keynote address for a Symposium focusing on “Agriculture, Intellectual Property, and Feeding the World in the 21st Century.” As I thought about this topic, knowing that there were other speakers who would focus more on the IP issues and technical aspects of various topics, I kept coming back to the importance of technology as we worktowards the goal of feeding the world, and the many ways in which innovation plays a role in meeting that goal. It also brought ...


A Complete Misinterpretation Of The “Small Partnership” Exception, Neil E. Harl 2017 Iowa State University

A Complete Misinterpretation Of The “Small Partnership” Exception, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

The “small partnership” exception, enacted in 1982 as part of TEFRA,1 has been criticized in the past, mostly by the Joint Committee on Taxation, but never as irresponsibly as the recent release by the Office of Chief Counsel of the Internal Revenue Service, dated July 12, 2017 and released August 18, 2017.2 The author (or authors) write as though they had never read I.R.C. § 6231(a)(1)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code. The criticism comes less than six months before the “small partnership” exception is scheduled to be history unless an aggressive effort to save ...
