Food Law Symposium

This fall, the SMU Science & Technology Law Review is proud to co-host a Food Law Forum with Strasburger & Price, LLP and Michigan State University.  The Forum will be held on the SMU Dedman School of Law campus on Friday, September 9th. The event will feature panel discussions from prominent lawyers and legal scholars from both the DFW legal community and nationwide. The discussions will cover two current and complex issues in Food Law. The first is the recent developments concerning the labeling of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) products that have taken shape since the Supreme Court’s decision in Sorrell v. IMS. The second is the complex regulation of food manufacturing, and will feature panels outlining the prevention, liability, and legal enforcement in the event of manufacturing irregularities, such as the recent listeria concerns surrounding Blue Bell. This Forum will be a thorough and current examination of fascinating legal topics that have a direct impact on the daily life of consumers and the constitutional liberties inherent in marketplace competition.
