Graduates of the Agricultural & Food Law Program are among the leaders in the agricultural law community. Employment opportunities are diverse and rewarding.
- Many of our alumni have been employed by the federal government, working for agencies and as advisors to members of Congress. Both the U.S. House and Senate Agriculture Committees’ legal staffs have included our alumni. During the recent farm bill negotiations, both the majority and the minority on the Senate Agriculture Committee were advised by LL.M. alumni. State agencies including departments of agriculture, natural resources, and environmental quality as well as attorney general’s offices have also employed our graduates.
- Our alumni have worked for advocacy groups, trade associations, and non-profit organizations, serving agricultural, consumer, and environmental interests.
- In practice, Agricultural Law Program alumni have worked both in the private firm setting (with small, mid-size and large firms) and as corporate counsel to agribusiness.
- And, our alumni have been found in academia, teaching at law schools, undergraduate colleges, through the extension service, and at community colleges.
The LL.M. Program maintains a blog that lists job opportunities for professional positions involved with agriculture or food law and policy.
