Congratulations to the LL.M. Class of 2011

The LL.M. class of 2011 was our largest class, with nineteen candidates from nine different states and three foreign countries. They were a fantastic group, diverse in perspective, but united in their interest in learning the complex laws associated with agricultural production and our overall food system. We will miss having them with us, but are proud to welcome them into the ranks of our alumni. Here are some pictures of our celebratory dinner and a few from graduation.  I will post more as they come in.  And, I will be posting in the coming days about some of the interesting work that these extraordinary attorneys will be doing with their specialized education.  Congratulations, all!
