In addition to Ag & Food Law - Eugenio Lomba Receives Award

Not all of our graduates find their ultimate career path in agricultural and food law positions. Professional opportunities often come up that take us off the path we initially envisioned.  Eugenio Lomba, an alumnus from Puerto Rico provides a good example.

For the past eight years, Eugenio has served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations Division (DHS-HSI), detailed to the U.S. Attorneys Office in San Juan. He prosecutes narcotics and money laundering cases with some sporadical civil forfeiture cases as well.

We are proud to report that last December, Eugenio was recognized with the DHS HSI San Juan Prosecutor Award. He is pictured here receiving the award. 

In an email exchange, Eugenio wrote, "I am convinced that my training and the education I received at the University of Arkansas played a significant part in my performance and accomplishments. I am very proud to be an alumni of the LL.M. Program."

Congratulations, Eugenio! We are proud as well of your important work.  

We strive to assure that the education we offer our students has a broad application to a wide range of professional possibilities.
