The Equine Science Center at Rutgers University is hosting the “Symposium on Legal, Business, and Insurance Issues Impacting the Equine Industry” on Monday, October 12th at “The Palace at Somerset Park,” Somerset, New Jersey. The symposium will feature legal experts from the Tri-State area who will speak on topics including: “Business Formation and Liability Issues for Equine Operations”, “U.S. Immigration Law”, “Workers Compensation Law for Equine Operations by Carol Perez, Esq.”, “The Importance of Equine Accountants”, “Basic Insurance Coverage for Equine Operations”, and the “New Jersey’s Right to Farm Act”.

“In order for the equine industry to succeed, people in the horse industry have to run their business as a business,” said Liz Durkin. “We believe that this symposium is the first event of its kind where the target audience is equine operators specifically. Other similar events are geared to either attorneys or accountants who practice in that field,” continued Ms. Durkin. “The event organizers felt that it was important to host a seminar, for a nominal fee, that will address the basics of the legal, accounting, and insurance topics for equine operators. Our goal is to assist equine operators in becoming as successful as possible.”

Registration for the symposium (Which will start at 9:30am) is $75. The registration fee includes the catered breakfast and lunch, as well as all the conference materials. Students with a valid ID will have a discounted rate of $50. Seating is limited and will only be guaranteed upon receipt of payment in the form of check payable to the Rutgers University Equine Center.
