Michele Simon, author of Appetite for Profit visits the LL.M. Class for Q&A session


Students in the LL.M. Food Law & Policy class were recently joined by Michele Simon, a well known public health lawyer with a specialization in the food industry and food politics. Michele is the author of Appetite for Profit: How the Food Industry Undermines Our Health and How to Fight Back, published by Nations Books, 2006.  She provides legal services to food and beverage companies, working "of counsel" with our alumni Jason Foscolo and Lauren Handel at Foscolo and Handel PLLC, The Food Law Firm.

Michele's visit capped off the Public Health and Food Law Unit in the Food Law & Policy class. The class was treated to a thought-provoking and at times provocative consideration of our food system. Our thanks to Michele for a great class.
