Farming and the Law is the first publication in Ireland, in over a decade, dealing specifically with legal issues that arise in farming. It offers a comprehensive overview of the legal issues of which farmers should be aware, in an increasingly complex and regulated environment. This book serves to demystify and decipher the often-incomprehensible jargon associated with the law as it relates to farming.
Irish farming has changed significantly over the years, and it continues to evolve. In a short space of time, it has become more bureaucratic and regulated. Specialist knowledge is required to fully appreciate the problems that farmers face today, as many decisions carry legal, tax and practical implications. Farmers and landowners who keep abreast of current laws and regulations will be empowered to make better decisions for their farming business.
This book is designed to be accessible to the layperson, including farmers, members of the public, and anyone interested in the law in relation to farming, as well as providing an invaluable reference for legal practitioners advising clients in this particular area of law.
