After I passed the New York bar exam in 2019, I began researching opportunities to gain more legal education and credentials in a field of law I was particularly interested–food law. That’s when I found a Master of Laws (LL.M) degree from the University of Arkansas in food and agricultural law and policy.
The program is a hybrid of virtual and in-person classes and allows students to attend on a part-time basis. I was excited about the program, because I am passionate about food law and want to be an advocate for individuals with food allergies. I felt the program would help me better understand the nuances of food law and policy and help me better advocate for change in food policy.
