For experienced attorneys, our Program has been a way to enhance specialized skills or to chart a new career path. Jason Foscolo of Foscolo & Handel PLLC - The Food Law Firm - in New York stated, "I could not do what I do without having completed the LL.M. Program in Agriculture and Food Law. Attending the Program was the best professional choice I have made as an attorney."
Our LL.M. Program is small and specialized by design. In the past, we have enrolled only an average of about 10-12 students a year. No one is guaranteed a job at graduation, and some take a while to find that perfect match. However, the following list evidences the diversity of employment opportunities and highlights the talents of our LL.M. candidates. We are proud of their achievements.
Listed below are some of the positions that are currently held by recent (2011- 2013) LL.M. Students/Alumni. Note that our more experienced alumni are found as partners in their law firms, in high level positions at USDA and other agencies, in agribusiness, in academia and elsewhere. But, that's another list. Here, we honor our most recent graduates, with their positions listed in no particular order.
