    Equine Law has become increasingly popular since the equine industry has a $122 billion economic impact on the U.S. economy, with 7.2 million horses and employing 1.74 million people (according to the American Horse Council's 2017 economic impact study of the U.S. Horse Industry).

    Our panel will address negligence liability and equine activity liability acts (now in 48 states) as well as elements of contracts that lawyers are often asked to draft -- boarding contracts, leases, and sales agreements. For lawyers assisting their clients with risk management, faculty will address waivers/releases and insurance coverage.

    In sum, you will learn:

    • Equine-related liability claims and defenses, common-law and statutory
    • Common as well as unique elements of equine-related contracts, including boarding contracts, leases, and sales agreements as well as how state statutes (equine liability acts and seller disclosure laws) can impact language within these contracts
    • Important elements of risk management strategies such as waivers/releases and insurance coverage to help you better assist your clients in avoiding liability
