What law does it take to get food on our plates every day? Because agri-food production happens in the intersection of numerous areas of law, food law has emerged as a new area of legal study and practice in Canada.
A panel of experts will engage with several pressing issues in Canadian food law — including migrant workers, food safety, geographical indications, and food system justice — on Thursday, February 15, at 12:45 p.m. in the law building’s Farmer Conference Room.
- Windsor Law student Terra Duchene, a member of the Campus Community Garden management team;
- Patricia Galvao Ferreira, Law Foundation of Ontario scholar, Windsor Law;
- Law professor Vasanthi Venkatesh, University of Windsor;
- Sarah Berger Richardson, doctoral candidate in the Faculty of Law, McGill University;
- Marsha Simone Cadogan, post-doctoral fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation’s International Law Research Program.
“What is food law? Why Canada needs it!” is co-sponsored by the Faculty of Law and the Environmental Law Society. To confirm attendance, RSVP to Katie.Bartelds@uwindsor.ca.
