UMAU is the place where the international community of agricultural lawyers meets, debates, shares ideas and promotes the study of global agricultural law. Three words emphasize the essence of our association: agriculture, law and friendship.
UMAU intends to contribute to the promotion of agricultural production activities through scientific development and comparison of legal systems, in order to ensure the fulfillment of each country’s food needs and the well-being of their population.
We promote the development of innovative ideas and new lines of research in agricultural law at an international level.
We consider our differences as being a substantial contributor to UMAU's associative culture and we are committed to their valorization.
We believe in the importance of building an environment that is professionally stimulating and personally satisfying.
We value professional and personal integrity as a fundamental aspect of UMAU's associative culture.
