Symposium to Examine New Landscapes in Food and Agricultural Law and Policy’ October 1
The Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation will host its annual symposium from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Friday, October 1, in Knight Law Center 175. This event is free and open to the public, however; registration is encouraged.
This year’s theme, “Cultivating our Future: New Landscapes in Food and Agricultural Law and Policy,” will examine the ways in which the industrialization of agriculture has radically changed the way food is produced and consumed around the globe. These changes have disrupted the fundamental farming practices of communities around the world and resulted in global food crises. Addressing these problems requires examining all aspects of food and agricultural policy. The symposium will host panel and keynote presentations geared toward mitigating the negative implications of today’s agricultural practices and focusing on solutions.
