I just heard some exciting news – the Survey to Food and Agriculture Law Course offered this summer will be available to folks all over the country (and the world, for that matter). Pace Law School will be making the course available with a distant learning option, which will be more convenient for many of you who are on other parts of the country – especially those of you who are working.
As a reminder, the 1 credit course will be July 1-5, 2013 from 9am – 12pm (not meeting on July 4th) and it is available to law students and attorneys. We’ll be reading through Susan Schneider’s book “Food, Farming and Sustainability” and covering a myriad of food and agriculture law topics.
For those of you who know me know that I’m a very practical person – my goal is to have the students see the forest through the regulatory trees and have a solid grip on the complex legal system regulating U.S. food and agriculture. This class is offered on the Land Use and Natural Resources track along with some other phenomenal courses during Pace’s summer environmental program.
For those of you who are working, the reading that I assigned is somewhat voluminous (by necessity) but I trimmed it back to get to the meat and potatoes. For those of you taking the course for a grade, there will be a short take-home exam where you can use whatever resources you want, including your classmates (like real life!). The class can also be audited.
