|LL.M. Candidate Jacob Kerksieck|
Handel Food Law was founded by LL.M. Alumna Lauren Handel, a nationally recognized food law attorney. Handel Food Law is specifically dedicated to food, beverage and farming businesses.
Our Graduate Assistantship Program provides for a limited number of private 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.
Jacob holds a J.D. from the University of Arkansas School of Law and a Bachelor of Science in Business from the Sam M. Walton College of Business. We thank Handel Food Law for their support of the LL.M. Program and for the mentoring they will provide to Jacob. And, we congratulate Jacob for the award.
