LL.M. Program Visiting Professor Neil Hamilton on the New Farm Bill

We are particularly proud of the Visiting Professors that teach our condensed courses and the leadership that they provide on agricultural and food law issues.

Just last week, the new Farm Bill was signed into law by President Obama.  Our friend and visiting Professor Neil Hamilton, Director of the Drake Agricultural Law Center and the Dwight D. Opperman Distinguished Professor of Law was interviewed by Mid-Missouri Public Radio in a piece titled The Uneasy Marriage of Food Stamps and the Farm Bill.  Click on the link to read the article and listen to Professor Hamilton's interview.

Professor Hamilton is recognized as one of the nation's leading agricultural law scholars and has been a true visionary in his recognition of the connections between agriculture, food, and society.

We will be delighted to welcome Professor Hamilton back to Arkansas next month when he will be teaching a class on local food issues, including a look at what the Farm Bill offers to New Agriculture.
