What the school says:
Global concerns about food security and interest in our food system have generated increasing interest in the study of agricultural and food law as an emerging area of practice and scholarship.
Worldwide, agriculture has been treated differently than other industries. Food, as the most essential of products, is deserving of special consideration. Because of this unique status, advanced study is necessary.
The agricultural sector uses more natural resources, including land and water, than any other single industry. Developing an agricultural system that balances production needs with environmental sustainability in the face of global warming, is a critical challenge for the future.
Agricultural and food law is a study of the network of laws and policies that apply to our food system, from farm to plate. It includes the study of commercial laws; environmental laws ; food safety and food labeling laws; the marketing and advertising of agricultural and food products; international trade issues; agricultural labor laws, nutrition and food assistance programs, animal welfare standards, and overall farm and food policy. There is nothing more basic, yet there are few things more complex.
Whether the task is debating international food safety standards, assessing farm programs for compliance with WTO, evaluating foreign land investment, or addressing world hunger and the right to food, the study of agricultural and food law extends far beyond U.S. borders.
