Global Food Law Program Graduates Its Largest Class

The first major cohort of students from Michigan State University College of Law’s Global Food Law Program will graduate Friday.
The College of Law commencement ceremony will be at 11 a.m. at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center. Because the Global Food Law Program is completely online, graduation is the only on-campus activity for the program.
Launched in 2012 in collaboration with MSU’s Institute for Food Laws and Regulations, the Global Food Law Program is the first and only global food law master’s degree program. It offers two tracks: a master of laws for practicing lawyers or those with a law degree and a master of jurisprudence for those without law degrees. There are currently 30 students from seven countries enrolled in the program.
The full story is here.
