The Academy of Food Law and Policy Presents

The Second Annual Conference on Food Law and Policy

Co-sponsored by the Georgia State University Center for Law, Health & Society


Tuesday December 10, 2019  Georgia State University College of Law Atlanta, GA

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 is hosting its second annual conference at Georgia State University College of Law in Atlanta, Georgia. This annual conference is designed to create and continue a foundation for the long-term stability of the field. This conference will: (1) feature works-in-progress workshops and poster presentations to connect the Food Law and Policy scholarly community; (2) provide meaningful and in depth explorations of food law in multiple formats; (3) foster a dynamic and robust discussion through plenary sessions; and (4) contemplate the possibility of a symposium issue potentially to be pitched the Journal of Legal Medicine.
