AMARILLO – All things relating to agricultural law can soon be found with a click of a button as Tiffany Dowell Lashmet begins a new podcast called “Ag Law in the Field.”

Dowell Lashmet, a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agricultural law specialist in Amarillo, will host guests weekly for a 30-minute segment to talk about a wide variety of ag law topics.

The podcast will be available every Thursday online at http://aglaw.libsyn.com/, on iTunes or on the Podcast app on cell phones, all for free.

“One of the best things about a podcast is that people can listen to them anywhere, from their computers on the website or on their phones while driving down the road, plowing on the tractor or even running on the treadmill,” Dowell Lashmet said.

“From law students to seasoned attorneys, to lawyers with experience in international firms and those who hung out their own shingle in Small Town America…we plan to visit with them all and discuss their thoughts, experiences and interests related to agricultural law,” she said.

“So, for example, our first episode is a law student discussing what law school is really like, our second will be an attorney who handles environmental issues for ag clients, and then later on I’ve got attorneys coming to talk about the probate process, having your own ag law practice, divorces, estate planning and water law,” Dowell Lashmet said.

She said she and her guests will discuss policy, cases and interesting stories, all while keeping things practical and providing some perspective of ag law issues going on in Texas and around the country.

Dowell Lashmet already publishes Texas Agriculture Law Blog, which has been named one of the top 100 legal blogs in the nation three years in a row, according to editors of the ABA Journal, the professional publication of the American Bar Association.
