LL.M. Alumna Margie Alsbrook Presents at Hamline Food Law Conference

On April 15,  Hamline University School of Law in Minnesota hosted a symposium, Sourcing Food:  Finding Common Ground in an Age of Agricultural Competition and Conglomeration organized by the Hamline Journal of Public Law & Policy.

The LL.M. Program was well represented, as one of the six featured speakers was our alumna, Margie Alsbrook.  She presented on the topic,  From Test Tubes to Tongues: Regulatory Issues Related to Genetically Engineered Animals in the Food Supply and will be be publishing a related article in the fall edition of Journal.  She served on their expert panel that concluded the symposium.

Margie reports that it was a really interesting day and Katrina Knutson, the Symposium Editor, "did an absolutely fabulous job.  All of the speakers were very impressed with her professionalism and the event as a whole."

Margie's previous article on genetically modified and genetically engineered animals in the food supply was published by the Drake Journal of Agricultural Law in 2008.  She was also the founding editor-in-chief of the Journal of Food Law & Policy while she was a law student, and is currently working on a book for Springer Publishing with fellow LL.M. alumnus Erimar von der Osten.  Margie has her own legal practice, Alsbrook Legal Services where she works on a variety of food & agricultural law topics as well as with local businesses & entrepreneurs.
