“Knowing how the law is really applied in practice has allowed me to speak confidently about my legal experience during job interviews.”

Elizabeth Busdicker is a Student Clinician in the Urban Food, Farm & Agriculture Law Practicum. As a Clinician, she assists small businesses in the food and farming industries with their formational, transactional, and intellectual property needs.

“Working at the Legal Clinic has easily been the most valuable and rewarding opportunity for me at MSU Law,” she said. “The Clinic has allowed me to build relationships with clients over several semesters and observe how our legal services positively impact their businesses. Knowing how the law is really applied in practice has also allowed me to speak confidently about my legal experience during job interviews.”

She chose MSU Law because she could see that the school had a strong interest in its students' successes and career paths. “All of my professors here have been more than happy to spend extra one-on-one time with me if I have questions from class or need help with outside projects. For example, this year I have been working on a Law Review Note, and have had multiple professors read it, critique it, or discuss it with me in their spare time,” Elizabeth said.

Elizabeth has also found support in fellow students. “We have a great academic environment. Support comes from lots of places. I often get valuable advice from the law students working at the library's circulation desk, and within the classroom I feel a lot of support and generosity from classmates,” she said.
