Agriculture 360 Professional Workshops

4 February 2020 - 17 March 2020

In 2020 we will be taking the opportunity to tour the Country to deliver some new interactive seminars, focussed upon the practical application of law to case studies based upon some common scenarios for the rural professional. Depending on venue, the case study will either be a development scenario pitched at the legal and taxation problems faced by a rural estate in delivering development projects or a mock mediation based around the challenges of modernising farming practises in the face of 19th century landlord and tenant legislation. These sessions are based around the popular interactive teaching model we use at the CAAV National Tutorial, but intended to be of interest to those of all levels of experience.

The Development Case Studies will be held at Milton Keynes and Cowbridge and will be based around the challenges of delivering vacant possession of development sites whilst meeting the common but difficult taxation and landlord and tenant constraints. Those attending will have the opportunity to work through a common development scenario in order to consider how they might achieve the best outcome for their respective (hypothetical) clients, alongside the Michelmores Team, in a relaxed and informal setting.

The mock mediation sessions will be held at York, Chester and Exeter and will cover the common issues faced by landlords, tenants, business owners, and estates in engaging with the fast paced world of sustainable farming whilst adhering to the legal and regulatory constraints upon their use of land and relationships with one another. Those attending will have the opportunity to participate in a mock mediation, in which they will review the problems commonly faced by those advising in this area, and seek to obtain a good settlement for their hypothetical clients. The sessions will also provide a useful insight into the mediation process, for the uninitiated, and an opportunity to discuss the problems in a realistic scenario with the Michelmores Team.

Drinks will be provided upon arrival, and supper after the work has finished!
