  • 8:00am - 7:00pm: The Future of Food: Growing Opportunities
    Food Law and Policy conversations are becoming increasingly prevalent in academic, legal, and popular discourse. The food we eat, and our laws and policy governing it, have a profound impact on urban and rural communities, the natural environment, and animals. This year’s symposium takes a critical, intersectional, and interdisciplinary look at the environmental and food justice impacts of our food systems, the public health implications of our food choices, and business of food in our modern world.

  • 12:10pm: Speaker Series – Ryan Merkley
    Laws protecting animals in laboratories are weak and poorly enforced. Yet individuals and organizations within and outside government are attempting to water down those laws even more. Meanwhile, the public is more concerned about animal welfare and more skeptical of animal experimentation than ever before. Ryan Merkley of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine will examine these issues and discuss what groups are doing to fight the current efforts to deregulate animal industries.
