National Jurist Lists Food Law as One of Top Ten Hot Areas for Employment

The September- October Issue of National Jurist magazine includes the article, What's Hot: Ten Practice Areas that are Driving Hiring Now.  It discusses the job market for attorneys, noting that the market is picking up, but that it is also changing.  It lists the top ten areas that are expected to be "hot" in terms of opportunities and new hiring.

Food Law is number 8 on the list.  To be accurate, they refer to "food and drug law" but reading their description of the types of positions, they are clearly talking about the food law and policy arena - including the new Food Safety Modernization Act, with a regulatory reach down to the production level and the wide range of interesting legal issues involved with marijuana production and sale in states where it's legal.

We were delighted to have our LL.M. Program in Agricultural & Food Law listed along with Michigan State, where a distance LL.M. Program in Global Food Law is available.

Note that this issue also gives us another huge shout out -  the University of Arkansas School of Law is rated as #1 for Best Value in legal education.
