The faculty and candidates of the LL.M. Program in Agriculture and Food Law are the thought leaders in their field. Their research, and the articles that appear in the University of Arkansas School of Law’s Journal of Food Law and Policy, help shape the way we think about agricultural and food law.
Susan Schneider’s textbook Food, Farming, and Sustainability: Readings in Agricultural Law is the preeminent resource for understanding the complexities of agricultural law and teaching it in a law school setting. Professor Schneider is now working on an update to this book to be released Fall 2015.
