Resnick Staffer Pens UCLA Law Review Article on Food Law in the Trump Era

Diana Winters, assistant director of scholarship at UCLA Law’s Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy and an associate professor at Indiana University McKinney School of Law, writes in UCLA Law Review Discourse that the absence of a coherent food law policy under President Trump, coupled with a generally pro-deregulation federal agenda, will slow progress on food law and policy.

The article is published in the current volume of UCLA Law Review Discourse, the online publication of the UCLA Law Review.

In the article, “Food Law at the Outset of the Trump Administration,” 65 UCLA L. Rev. Disc. 28 (2017), Winters argues that state and local governmental action, in addition to work by the food-law movement — which is characterized by “a loose coalition of groups and individuals working to improve the nation’s food systems” — will take the place of federal action and “drive any progress in food policy going forward.”

In another recent article, for the Ohio State Law Journal, “Restoring the Primary Jurisdiction Doctrine,” 78 Ohio St. L. J. 541 (2017), Winters touches on food law in a broader discussion of the process by which a court may seek the administrative resolution of a regulatory issue in an ongoing case.
