Michigan State University, July 16-19, 2012
The Institute for Food Laws & Regulations (www.IFLR.msu.edu) at Michigan State University will present two courses, a U.S. Food Law Short Course on July 16-17, and a Food Regulation Current Issues Seminar on July 18-19, 2012, on the campus of Michigan State University. Participants may choose to take one or both courses. The courses are offered in a collegial, intimate learning environment.
The U.S. Food Law Short Course is designed as an introduction to U.S. food laws and regulations for professionals in the field. It is well suited for those new to the field but also comprehensive enough on the essential elements of food law to provide a refresher course for the experienced professional. The course is fully updated for the Food Safety Modernization Act.
The Food Regulation Current Issues Seminar provides practical education on current food legal and regulatory issues. The topics cover cutting edge issues of food regulation, involving FDA, USDA, advertising, and global issues. Speakers from the legal, government, food industry, and academic professions will present practical food safety and food law information and case studies.
“Passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act makes it vital for firms and individuals to stay current on food law,” said Neal Fortin, Director of the Institute for Food Laws & Regulations, “Our short course and seminar provide expert guidance and education on the latest legal and regulatory changes affecting the food industry."
