Journal of Food Law & Policy Symposium: The Past, Present & Future of Food Law

On March 20th, the Journal of Food Law & Policy celebrated its 10th anniversary with a symposium featuring some of the most recognized names in food law and policy. Our guests were instrumental in establishing the Journal 10 years ago, and we were honored to celebrate this special occasion with them.

Our speakers included:

Neil Hamilton, Dwight D. Opperman Chair of Law and Professor of Law at Drake Law School. Professor Hamilton also serves as the Director of the Drake Agricultural Law Center.

Peter Barton Hutt, Senior Counsel, Covington & Burling LLP and Instructor of Food & Drug Law at Harvard Law School. Professor Hutt is one of the authors of the leading casebook, Food & Drug Law: Cases and Materials (4th ed., Foundation Press 2013).

Michael T. Roberts, Executive Director, Resnick Program for Food Law & Policy at UCLA Law School and former Research Professor of Law at the University of Arkansas school of Law; and

Susan Schneider, William H. Enfield Professor of Law and Director, LL.M. Program in Agricultural & Food Law.

The conference was presented in the LL.M. Study at the University of Arkansas School of Law and was streamed to a live audience participating via distance. A recording of excerpts from the Symposium will be posted on the Journal of Food Law Policy's website and announced when on this blog when it becomes available.

The Journal of Food Law & Policy is the only student-edited legal journal in the country devoted to the study of food law and its impact on society. It’s first issue was published in July 2005, leading the legal academy in this emerging area of law. The LL.M. Program in Agricultural & Food Law was proud to co-sponsor this conference, showcasing our state-of-the-art distance technology. Our thanks to all of our speakers and to our participants for this wonderful event, and congratulations to the Journal.
