Marler Clark, based in Seattle, Washington and founded by Marler, Stearns, and Bruce Clark is the most prominent foodborne illness litigation firm in the U.S. They have been active in representing seriously ill victims of food borne illness and the families of those who died of foodborne illness for decades. In addition, these dedicated attorneys have advocated tirelessly for additional food safety protections, better testing and regulatory protocols, and enhanced food safety education. Their pro bono work is an inspiration to all in the profession.
For several years, Bill Marler has taught a condensed class for us, discussing his experience with his clients and the litigation he has pursued, and also presenting his views on food safety issues. In the last two years, Denis Stearns has joined him. Denis has taught Food Safety and related subjects at Seattle University School of Law and is a recognized food law scholar. Their combined efforts make for a terrific class.
Once again, Bill and Denis donated their teaching stipend to a Marler Clark Scholarship to be given to an LL.M. student next year that will write articles for the firm sponsored national news service, Food Safety News.
Thank you, Bill and Denis.
