LL.M. in Agricultural and Food Law

I am pleased to announce that we passed the final administrative hurdle and can now officially describe our LL.M. Program at the University of Arkansas School of Law as the LL.M. Program in Agricultural and Food Law.

Since 1980, we have been the only U.S. law school offering an LL.M. degree in Agricultural Law, and we are now leading the way with the only LL.M. in Food Law. We offer specialized Food Law courses in addition to our regular agricultural law curriculum, and we integrate food law into the existing agricultural law courses. This allows us to address the full spectrum of law and policy issues surrounding our food system, from the perspective of the farmer, the processor, the wholesaler, the retailer, and ultimately the consumer. In the coming months, we will be celebrating our name change and embarking on a new marketing campaign.
