Janie Hipp Visits LL.M. Class

We were delighted to host our alumnus, Janie Hipp last Friday. Janie serves as Senior Advisor for Tribal Affairs to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and is also the Director of the new USDA Office of Tribal Relations within the Office of the Secretary.  Janie delivered a powerful message about her work with tribal members and the USDA's efforts to rebuild trust and encourage participation.

Just last month, Janie received special recognition for her liaison work with the nation's tribes at the Indian Agriculture Symposium, in Las Vegas, Nevada.


We are delighted to provide our LL.M. candidates the opportunity to learn from and interact with our alumni.  Having our graduates in such high positions within the USDA is an honor and a tribute to the talented LL.M. candidates that go through our Program.  We look forward to working with Janie on Program initiatives going forward.
