The Academy of Food Law and Policy Hosted


The First Annual

Conference on Food Law and Policy

Friday, October 5

Harvard Law School


Food Law and Policy is one of the fastest growing legal fields, with a rapidly increasing number of law review articles, conferences, courses, and clinical programs focused on the field’s cases and controversies.


In response to this explosive growth, the Academy of Food Law and Policy hosted its inaugural conference at Harvard Law School designed to create a foundation for the long-term stability of the field. This conference: (1) featured works in progress workshops  connecting the Food Law and Policy scholarly community; (2) highlighted the parameters of the field through group driven discussion, including a discussion of teaching in the field.


The Conference welcomed over 40 attendees and featured a series of workshops, moderator-led discussion groups, and a lunchtime panel led by AFLP past and current Board Members.
