Journal of Food Law & Policy: Call for Articles and New Connection with LL.M. Program

The Journal of Food Law & Policy is seeking article submissions.  For ten years, the Journal has been a leading voice in the food law and policy movement, publishing legal scholarship on a wide variety of food law issues. While some articles have reflected the traditional food and drug law approach and presented excellent regulatory analysis, more typically, the articles have presented a look beyond this. They have discussed the most relevant current food policy issues, often with a systemic perspective that transcends the legal academy's traditional approach. The Journal strives for excellent scholarship with "real world" significance -  a mission appropriate for the one area of law that touches everyone in the world -  food.

The Journal's leadership role and its tenth anniversary were noted by authors Baylen Linnekin (Keep Food Legal) and Emily Broad Lieb (Harvard's Food Law and Policy Clinic) in their recent article, Food Law & Policy: The Fertile Field's Origins & First Decade. It was published at 2014 Wisc. L. Rev. 557 last Spring.  A companion video, Food Law & Policy describes the emerging discipline, interviews leaders in the field, and credits the Journal for its innovation. My appreciation is extended to Baylen and Emily for this recognition and for the opportunity to participate in the video.

The Journal of Food Law & Policy continues to be the only student-edited U.S. law journal focused exclusively on food law and policy issues. Journal articles are available on both Westlaw and Hein On Line, and a new web site will soon post past issues for download.  Regular features include food law updates from the United States, the European Union, and Canada. The Journal is published twice a year and is edited by some of the top law students at the University of Arkansas School of Law. I am privileged to serve as the faculty advisor.

This year's Editor in Chief is A. Jordan Broyles. I worked closely with Jordan last year as a Journal candidate when she undertook the challenging task of writing about the historical struggle in regulating raw milk sales. I am confident that Jordan will be an excellent leader for the Journal this year, and I look forward to working with her, the board, and the new candidates.

In a new development, I am pleased to announce that this year at the request of the Journal, we are connecting the LL.M. Program in Agricultural & Food Law with the Journal by adding an LL.M. Advisor from this year's class. LL.M. candidate Justin Crawley has agreed to serve in this capacity and has already begun work with the Journal staff.  Justin received his from J.D. from Appalachian School of Law where he served as Senior Editor of the Appalachian Natural Resources Law Journal and was the recipient of “Exceptional Service Award” for outstanding performance on a student publication.  Justin also served as the President and Chief of the Executive Board of the Environmental Law Society. His leadership and support will be very helpful to Jordan and her staff.

Please consider submitting your publication to the Journal. We may be able to include additional articles in our Fall publication, offering a very prompt production schedule.  Submission can be made through ExPresso or by direct delivery via e-mail to foodlaw@uark.edu.  Written submissions can be sent to the address below.  Please include a brief abstract and CV or resume with each submission.
