|Dean Stacy Leeds and LL.M. Director Susan Schneider|
Dean Stacy Leeds joined us during our orientation program this week, and in her welcome message, Dean Leeds emphasized the longstanding role that the LL.M. Program has played in preparing future leaders in agricultural and food law, and its current role as a pioneer of legal distance education.
Included in our LL.M class are 18 candidates composed of new and returning students, enrolled full and part time, participating both by distance and face-to-face in Fayetteville. They are a fantastic group, and we are delighted to have them with us. Their enthusiasm for agricultural and food law studies is inspiring.
In addition to our degree candidates, we have two practicing attorney's and one law student from another law school enrolled in our regular semester classes for transfer credit, and we have ten University of Arkansas JD Candidates taking classes as well.
Our degree candidates include:
