Law Firm of Northwest Arkansas: Graduate Assistant Jessica Fritts

LL.M. Candidate Jessica Fritts
We are proud to announce that The Law Group of Northwest Arkansas is once again sponsoring a Graduate Assistantship in the LL.M. Program for the 2016-17 academic year.  LL.M. Candidate Jessica Fritts was selected for this honor.

The Law Group of Northwest Arkansas is home to LL.M. Alumni KC Tucker and Kristy Boehler.  The Law Group has supported the LL.M. Program in many ways, sponsoring not only our Graduate Assistants, but sponsoring events at the law school as well.

The Law Group of Northwest Arkansas represents individuals and businesses in all areas of agricultural and food law "from farm to fork."

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.

Jessica recently completed a J.D. from the University of Arkansas School of Law where she served as a law clerk with the Law Group. Jessica holds a B.S. in Agriculture, Food & Life Sciences majoring in Poultry Science and Agricultural Business from the University of Arkansas.

We thank the The Law Group of Northwest Arkansas for their support of the LL.M. Program and for the mentoring they will provide to Jessica.  And, we congratulate Jessica for the award.
