FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — When it comes to giving career advice, Ebony Woodruff, APLC — legislator, consul, Master Gardener and the speaker for the March 29 “Growing Careers” webinar for law students — has a lot to offer.

“Ebony’s fascinating career journey has taken her across the hemisphere, showing that truly, food and ag law careers have no borders,” said NALC Director Harrison Pittman.
The “Growing Careers” series is a part of the NALC’s Bridges Initiative, which 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 careers.
“Webinars in our ‘Growing Careers’ series are an excellent opportunity for students to listen to advice from talented legal professionals,” Pittman said. “Ebony has a fascinating background and her work is top notch, so webinar attendees will greatly benefit from the experiences she shares and the practical professional advice given.”
“There are many career possibilities for law students who have an interest in ag and food law,” Woodruff said. “I’m looking forward to sharing a bit of my story and offering advice to these students while they are in such an exciting time in their lives. The NALC’s Bridges Initiative is a great way to encourage these students who are interested in careers in ag and food law.”
