Maine Food Law Colloquium

The Maine Law Review has issued a call for “papers for oral presentation at its Food Law Colloquium“. The colloquium is tentatively scheduled for February or March of 2013. It will deal with issues such as,

local food ordinances and states’ rights movements; the effects of the 2012 Farm Bill on small-scale agriculture; food safety and security; judicial responses to competing interests of seed patent owners and farmers; the challenges of securing financing for farmland conservation; administrative hurdles confronting the seafood industry; cooperatives and securities law; comparative analyses of food law frameworks; and emerging issues in food law.

It sounds like it could be a real interesting event to attend.
