From Last Year's Class: Nicole Cooks joins USDA

LL.M. Candidate Nicole Cook

Nicole Cook, an experienced attorney from Iowa, was in the LL.M. Program 2015-16, completing her class requirements with a Practicum over the summer.  She worked with the Good Food Institute. Through her Practicum, Nicole engaged in some fascinating legal research involving the potential regulatory issues involved in the development of alternative proteins.

Nicole will be moving to Washington, D.C. very soon, as she has accepted a position serving as a Senior Advisor in the Risk Management Agency (RMA) at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Nicole will be reporting directly to LL.M. Alumnus Brandon Willis, Administrator of the RMA.

Nicole reports that she is "excited for the opportunity to help continue the great work that USDA RMA has been doing and to meet more people and learn more about how the Federal government can help support American agriculture."

Congratulations, Nicole!
