Jason Foscolo joins LL.M. Speaker Series "Careers in Agricultural & Food Law"

Jason Foscolo joins LL.M. Speaker Series "Careers in Agricultural & Food Law

Join us on Wednesday, September 20th at 11:00 a.m. CST as Alumnus Jason Foscolo discusses his work as the founder and principle attorney at The Food Law Firm.


The Food Law Firm is a New York-based law firm serving farming and food entrepreneurs across the nation.

As Jason explains on his website -
I launched this firm in 2011 with the single goal of delivering general practice, commercial law services to food businesses. 
It is easy for me to point out to my clients the special regulations that apply to their food businesses. I go one step further than that. Over the years I’ve been in practice, I’ve developed an acute awareness for how the constellation of food laws and regulations can affect the ordinary commercial transactions that fill the business day. I add value for my clients by mitigating risks, both regulatory and commercial, and this is what makes me distinctive.
I admire my clients. From farmers to manufacturers, they are sharp and courageous. From shippers to importers, they are innovative and disruptive. It is a privilege to help them make their businesses better. 
I am a former Judge Advocate in the United States Marine Corps (separated in 2010 at the rank of Captain) and I’m currently serving as a Major in the New York Air National Guard. I’ve got three kiddos and an indefatigable wife, and you can usually find us eating things across our home range, the Hudson Valley of New York.
Food Law Firm clients include specialty pork producer Mosefund Mangalitsa, the gastro-job resource Good Food Jobs, trade associations like the American Mangalitsa Breeders Association and the American Cheese Society, and the highly-respected non-profit foundation, The Farmer-Veteran Coalition.

Jason writes the Food Law Blog with many followers and tweets at @FoodLawAttorney. He is an outspoken supporter of our Program and often mentions us favorably in the press, as evidenced in an excerpt from an interview with Gastronomes.
I had the extraordinary opportunity to pursue an advanced degree in Agriculture and Food Law at the University of Arkansas School of Law . . . the  program gave me a comprehensive understanding of the network of special laws that regulate almost every transaction in our food system.
Jason will join us by video-conference from his offices in New York. Join us in room 254 or catch the live stream by contacting us at llm@uark.edu.
