Alumna Marne Coit Teaching at NCSU

Alumni News: Marne Coit at North Carolina State University

LL.M. Alumna Marne Coit
Marne Coit, MSEL, JD, LLM (‘07) continues to teach in agricultural and food law. In August of 2016 she joined the faculty of the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. She teaches in the undergraduate program, and also advises students who are pursuing degrees in agribusiness management.
Marne notes that she appreciates being in a department that is focused on student success and provides the support students need to begin successful careers in agriculture. Marne was honored to be a recipient of the “Thank a Teacher” program of the NC State Office of Faculty Development in her first semester.
According to Department Head John Beghin, “It is critical that students learn the legal foundations of our agricultural systems in order to be successful, whether in their own agricultural or food businesses, or in careers working for companies that support these businesses. Marne brings a depth of knowledge in agricultural and food law to the position, which is a benefit to our students and our department.”
Marne’s work in agricultural law in the Department of ARE builds on the work of Professor Ted Feitshans, a well known agricultural law expert and former President of the American Agricultural Law Association, who retired last year. Marne expresses her appreciation for all the work that Ted did to build a solid agricultural law program at NC State.

Marne has been teaching since 2013, when she started teaching Food Systems Law & Policy, an online course in the Sustainable MBA program at Marylhurst University. The MBA in Sustainable Business is an accelerated online degree for working professionals. She also developed and taught the inaugural food policy class at Bard College in Spring 2016.
