I’m as pleased as artisanal punch to announce that I will be a panelist on an upcoming CLE hosted by Pace University School of Law entitled “A Survey of Local Food Law”. I’ll be appearing alongside fellow food law professionals Cari Rincker and Judith LaBelle discussing raw milk, labeling regulations, food product liability, cottage food laws, environmental regulations, and direct farm marketing. Continuing Legal Education Courses are usually attorney-only, but this one is open to the public – we are designing the course to educate our legal peers, but also to inform the general public about a field of law that affects them every day in innumerable ways. So if you are an attorney looking for guidance on how to service a new breed of food entrepreneur, you should attend. If you are a concerned or conscientious eater, you too will learn about the laws that govern the production of the foods you eat.
