Drake Agriultural Law Center Sponsors Graduate Assistant: Kelly Nuckolls

LL.M. Candidate Kelly Nuckolls
We are proud to announce that the Drake University Agricultural Law Center is sponsoring a Graduate Assistantship in the LL.M. Program for the 2016-17 academic year. LL.M. Candidate Kelly Nuckolls was selected for this honor.

The LL.M. Program has had a close relationship with the Drake Agricultural Law Center for many years, and its Director, Professor Neil Hamilton serves as a Visiting Professor in our Program, teaching a course each semester. 

The Graduate Assistantship Program provides for a limited number of sponsorship opportunities with organizations and firms with particularly close ties to the LL.M. Program. Students are afforded the opportunity to work closely with professionals who are practicing agricultural and food law, gaining valuable experience and hands-on training.  Sponsors have the opportunity to work with one of our students, maintaining close ties to our Program and benefiting from the student's accomplishments.

A full tuition waiver and a monthly stipend accompany the Graduate Assistantship Award.  The student performs up to 20 hours of work per week during the semester.

Kelly is a recent graduate of Drake University School of Law, where she studied under Professor Hamilton. She served as Executive Editor to the Drake Journal of Agricultural Law (2015-2016), as a Legal Intern at the Drake Agricultural Law Center (working with the Buy Fresh, Buy Local initiative); as a Policy Intern at the Iowa Food Bank Association, and as a Legal Intern with the Harvard Food Law & Policy Clinic. The assistantship award is a direct result of Kelly's excellent work and of her academic achievements.

We thank Professor Hamilton, the Drake University Agricultural Law Center and Drake University Law School for their support of the LL.M. Program.  And, we congratulate Kelly for the award.
