The Program’s educational component features high-caliber symposia and conferences, classes, and workshops. Our Food Law and Policy seminar course allows students to engage in an in-depth exploration of a topic of interest via individual papers and projects. We will also offer an Introduction to Food Law and Policy course, and plan to develop additional specialized courses on food law and policy, including a course on the Environmental Law of Agriculture.
The Food Law and Policy seminar course, which has been offered at UCLA Law for the last three years, will continue to allow students to engage in an in-depth exploration of a topic of interest via individual papers and projects. Starting in the spring of 2014, specialized courses on food law and policy will be offered. The first such specialized course is titled, Environmental Law of Agriculture.
In addition, through research and externship opportunities, as well as fellowships, the Program creates opportunities for students to work at the forefront of food policy and learn from leaders in the field.
The Program collaborates closely with UCLA’s student led Food Law Society, developing and co-sponsoring public programs and activities.
