Three distinguished law firms, the Marler Clark Law Firm, Bassett Law Firm LLP, and the Henry Law Firm are our partners in the program this year, and their participation is indeed an honor for us. This post announces Alli Condra as the Marler Clark Graduate Assistantship recipient.
Marler Clark is recognized as the nation’s foremost law firm representing victims of foodborne illness. Since 1998, Marler Clark attorneys have been involved in almost all of the major food poisoning cases in the U.S., representing victims of Campylobacter, E. coli O157:H7, Hepatitis A, Listeria, Norovirus, Salmonella, and Shigella outbreaks across the country.
Bill Marler, one of the founders of Marler Clark is an internationally recognized leader in food safety. Bill has been a tireless supporter of the reform of our food safety laws, through frequent media interviews, the very popular Marler Blog, his active Twitter feed, @bmarler and his "Put a Trial Lawyer Out of Business" campaign. He was instrumental to the passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act and for the USDA's recent declaration of additional E. coli pathogens as adulterants. His start in food safety litigation is chronicled in the new book, Poisoned: The True Story of the Deadly E.Coli Outbreak That Changed the Way Americans Eat.
Food Safety News, that reports on food safety, food law, and related issues. The Marler Clark Graduate Assistantship provides writing experience with Food Safety News.
Bill will be teaching Food Safety Litigation in the LL.M. Program this Fall. His generous contribution to the LL.M. Program also provides general support to our graduate assistantship program and to the LL.M. Program.
Our congratulations to Alli, and our thanks to Bill Marler and to Marler Clark.
