Indiana Farm Bureau staff attorney Justin Schneider of Columbus has been elected to the board of directors of American Agricultural Law Association.
The association is a national professional organization that focuses on the legal needs of the agricultural community, according to a news release from Indiana Farm Bureau.
The association offers an independent, nonpartisan forum for investigation of innovative and workable solutions to complex agricultural law problems. This role has taken on greater importance in the midst of current international and environmental issues that are reshaping agriculture and the impending technological advances which promise equally dramatic changes in the future.
Schnieder, a native of Brownstown and a graduate of Brownstown Central High School, is the son of Larry and Rita Schneider. He earned a bachelor’s degree in agribusiness management from Purdue and a juris doctorate from Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law.
He began working for Indiana Farm Bureau in 2005. In his role as staff attorney and lobbyist, he is primarily responsible for regulatory affairs with a focus on environmental issues.
