UK Law’s Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program recently hosted the 30th Annual National Conference on Equine Law at the beautiful and historic Keeneland Racecourse. Each year, registrants from over 30 states and several foreign countries take advantage of this unique educational opportunity.

The objective of the conference is to convey an understanding of current legal issues affecting breeding, buying, selling, ownership interests, racing and other business operations of the horse industry. The program is designed for attorneys who counsel, represent or litigate on behalf of buyers, sellers, breeders, brokers, owners of interests in horses, and other entities involved with the industry.

UK CLE Director Kevin Bucknam explains the impact of the conference on the equine industry, “The UK College of Law is honored and privileged to host the nation’s equine law practitioners for this national conference each year, right here in the heart of the equine industry. This program continues to grow in attendance and scope of topics and we are proud to help advance the level of knowledge, skills, and practice within the equine law bar and industry.”

Frank Angst, a writer for Blood-Horse LLC, covered several hot topics discussed at the conference:
