MSU College of Law Urban Food, Farm & Agriculture Practicum
The Urban Food, Farm & Agriculture Practicum provides services – involving such things as legal research, policy development, client counseling, and the provision of transactional legal services – to nonprofits and low-income individuals working with urban agriculture in Detroit, Michigan and other urban settings. The Practicum was initiated in January 2012 with a seed money grant from the DeWitt Holbrook Memorial Fund.
