FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The National Agricultural Law Center is hosting a webinar as
part of its “Growing Careers” series. The upcoming webinar, “Growing Careers in Agricultural
and Food Law for Undergraduate Students,” features Marla Dickerson, associate vice
chancellor of innovation and strategic partnerships and initiatives for the Southern
University Law Center.
“Marla’s webinar in our ‘Growing Careers’ series will be a great event for both undergraduate
students and faculty who advise them,” Harrison Pittman, NALC director, said. “She
has an extraordinary background that is highly valuable to students and faculty alike.”
The “Growing Careers” series is a part of the NALC’s Bridges Initiative. The Bridges Initiative is a student-focused, public-private partnership that offers
professional development, networking, and increased legal knowledge to pre-college,
undergraduate, and law students interested in agricultural and food law issues and
Additionally, on Oct. 5, the NALC expanded its national network of partners to include
SULC, which is one of six historically black college and university law schools in
the United States. Pittman said this is a first-of-its-kind partnership that the NALC
looks forward to developing further.
“SULC’s fantastic reputation and highly regarded leaders, such as Marla, make this
partnership a tremendous opportunity for us,” Pittman said.
Dickerson looks forward to working more with NALC in the future as well.
“The NALC is a great partner for SULC,” Dickerson said. “I’m looking forward to the
future and how we can serve students, faculty, and more with resources such as this
upcoming webinar. The ‘Growing Careers’ series is a great way to educate students
and those early on in their agricultural and food law careers.”
The webinar begins at 11 a.m. central/noon eastern. Registration is available online.
“We’re proud to have Marla as a National Agricultural Law Center partner,” Pittman
