Advanced Administrative Agency Clinic

The course component of the Agency Clinic instructs students in the three areas of clinic services provided to our client: administrative rulemaking, administrative enforcement and adjudication, and policy analysis. These topics are examined based on agriculture and food law topics such as food production regulation, food labeling, and public health issues related to agriculture and food. Students are exposed to the relationship between federal, state, and local government through the study of food production, consumption, and public health. In each class students are expected to address and analyze current client issues, as well as discuss and synthesize primary source materials such as administrative and food law cases, laws, and regulations just as a lawyer would in practice. Classes often include guest speakers such as elected officials, agency staff, legislative staff, advocates from the non-profit sector, and government affairs practitioners.
