Perhaps the only positive result of the 1980s farm financial crisis was the birth of the American Agricultural Law Association. Attorneys helping farmers through those challenging times founded the AALA. Fast forward 40 years, when over 400 attorneys gathered in Washington, DC for AALA's 40th anniversary conference. Past AALA Distinguished Service Award recipients, including OSU's Peggy Kirk Hall, gathered for a photo. For more about this fantastic organization, visit this link.
