LL.M. Courses Now Open to a Wider Audience


Agricultural & Food Law Curriculum now available to students and professionals outside of the University of Arkansas


We are pleased to announce that the LL.M. Program is now able to offer it's unique curriculum to an expanded body of individuals seeking to further their knowledge of agricultural and food law.

Since announcing our distance education opportunities, we have received a number of calls from students and attorneys who want to enroll in one or two courses without working toward a full LL.M. degree.  In response, we revised our policies to allow a limited number of special non-degree participants in our classes.

Who can take Agricultural & Food Law classes? 



First priority for all of our classes goes to our own LL.M. degree candidates.  We have always had a few spots in the class that were open to our Arkansas J.D. students and Arkansas graduate students. Beyond this, and subject to space-availability, we can now enroll a limited number of J.D. students from other law schools, practicing attorneys and other professionals, and graduate students in related fields from other Universities. This will expand the diversity of thought and the expertise of our students, enriching all of our classes. Regular Arkansas tuition applies, and in many instances the credits can be transferred back to the student's home program or presented for state CLE or other professional training certification.

Check the sidebar to the right for a list of classes that we will offer in the spring. Interested students and attorneys should contact the Program Administrator, Sarah Hiatt at sxh090@uark.edu for information on applying for admission and for our complete Spring class schedule. Spring semester classes begin the week of January 12, 2015.
