We have several remaining Graduate Assistantships (GAs) to award. GAs are only available to full time LL.M. candidates who enroll in our face-to-face program. These GAs provide for a full tuition waiver plus a $5,000 stipend per semester in exchange for part-time work designed to enhance the student's education and build their professional reputation. While awards may shift to accommodate the expertise of applicants, GA placements are likely to include:
- An opportunity to work with firms practicing food law, including one placement with our alumna, Lauren Handel, Handel Food Law;
- An opportunity to write for Food Safety News, sponsored by the nationally recognized firm of Marler Clark;
- Opportunities to assist the LL.M. Program or the Indigenous Food & Agriculture Initiative with a variety of projects including research, writing, and resource development.
- An opportunity to work with Accelerated JD candidates from foreign jurisdictions, assisting them with their transition to a U.S. law school setting;
- An opportunity to teach a Pre-Law Political Science class that introduces undergraduates to basic elements of our legal system and encourages them to explore a legal education:
- An opportunity to teach an Upper Level Legal Writing class that focuses on Civil Pre-Trial documents (opportunity limited to attorneys with practice experience and/or LRW teaching experience);
It is always the goal of the LL.M. Program to attract candidates that reflect the rich racial, cultural, ethnic, and geographic diversity of a global food system, expanding the reach and resources to all who seek to promote food justice.
