From urban ag to business advice, the second annual Food Law Forum will feature informative panels of local experts addressing legal and policy issues involved in producing and providing the food we eat.  The interactive sessions will include topics ranging from: urban farming to land use, food startups, micro-entrepreneurship, alcohol distribution, licensing, and labeling. The forum is designed for law students, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and other professionals currently working, or interested in, in the food and agriculture industries. The forum is made possible through a collaboration of the Business Law Programs and the student Food and Wine Law Society.
