 Starter for Ten

ALA’s residential training course Starter for Ten gives a basic introduction for trainees and the newly qualified in those elements of the law which are relevant to rural business advice.

Land law and tenancies are covered as are the Common Agricultural Policy and other features of European law which impact the sector. Tax and trusts are dealt with insofar as they affect farming and rural businesses and the course also details the relevant litigation aspects.

The next running of the Starter for Ten will be held on 13 to 15 March 2018. The booking form will be available in the Autumn.  However, if you would like to reserve a place for the 2018 course please contact Mike Holland at
