Last month, I moderated an equine law CLE webinar for the American Bar Association (“ABA”) General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Division’s Agriculture Law Committee titled “Common Equine Contracts:  What They Are, Pitfalls to Avoid, and Ideas for Effective Drafting.”  The renown faculty included Attorneys Avery Chapman, Julie Fershtman, and Thomas Nicholl.  The live webinar was on December 9, 2014; however, the recording is now available for purchase from the ABA here.

The webinar delves into Equine Activity Liability Acts, equine insurance, equine purchase and sales contracts (e.g., trial periods, installment sales, consignments, commissions, rights of first refusals), disclosure laws, tax considerations for equine contracts, equine leases (e.g., mare lease, foal transfer lease), boarding and training contracts, Agister’s lien laws, liability waivers and releases (e.g., indemnification clauses) and specialized breeding contracts (e.g., artificial insemination, frozen/cooled semen contracts, live cover, embryo transfer).


Overall, I thought this was an excellent program.  The faculty put together a substantive outline for attendees.  I recommend it for lawyers and nonlawyers interested in an overview of equine contract law.
