About the Program
It is critical in today's ever-growing global marketplace to understand the legal complexities of food laws and regulations, and how they impact the flow of food and agricultural products across national boundaries.
Michigan State University College of Law's online Master of Laws (LL.M.) and Master of Jurisprudence (M.J.) degree programs in global food law are designed for lawyers and other professionals working in the food and agriculture industries, food safety, law, government, and other areas involving international food law.
The LL.M. program is aimed at students who have earned a Juris Doctor (J.D.), Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.), or other comparable law degree. The M.J. program is designed for those who do not have a law degree, such as doctoral students in other disciplines, policymakers, government officials, business executives, scientists, and other professionals.
Students in the programs will benefit from the close alignment between the Law College and MSU's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, which co-sponsors an International Food Law Internet Certificate Program with the University's Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition.
