Weekend reading: Jennifer Pomeranz’s Food Law
Jennifer L. Pomeranz. Food Law for Public Health. Oxford University Press, 2016.
I’m told that food law is the hottest area in legal education right now. At a time when law schools and lawyers are struggling, food law offers opportunities. Food issues are so controversial that they constitute a full employment act.
