Professor Neil Hamilton: Introduction to the Law of Food & Agriculture

LOTS GOING ON in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Monday, August 18 was the first day of classes for the 2014-15 LL.M. Program academic year. We were proud to welcome 9 face-to-face candidates and 3 of our distance candidates to Fayetteville for an orientation session and our first condensed course. Several other distance candidates are taking the course via distance education.

I'll do another post that reports on and shows photos of he renovated LL.M. classroom -  it looks fantastic!

And, bios for this year's class will be posted later this week.  They are a great group, of experienced attorneys and recent law graduates from Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Also in keeping with our tradition, we were honored to welcome Professor Neil Hamilton as our first Visiting Professor of the year.  Professor Hamilton is the Dwight D. Opperman Chair of Law at Drake University Law School and Director of the Drake Agricultural Law Center. He teaches our orientation course, An Introduction to the Law of Food & Agriculture, as our first condensed course.  This course covers a wide range of issues, setting the stage for our further discussions of the important areas of agricultural and food law.  It is a great way to begin another year.
