This food law thing is catching on – we have a CLE now. Through the sheer dogged determination of my colleague Cari Rincker, attorneys everywhere now have a legal education resource that will enable them to provide specialized counsel to small-scale and direct market farmers. Cari put together a very well-rounded program for the American Bar Association, covering the Food Safety Modernization Act, cottage food laws, land use in urban agriculture, food labeling guidance, and a whole bunch more. I’ll be on the panel to discuss raw milk.
If you have any desire to represent farm clients or food producers, this course is an excellent way to establish your toolkit. The live CLE will be held on Thurday, May 10, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM EST. You can view the flyer here if you would like more information on how to sign up.
