Please join me from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, August 17, at the Louisville Bar Association for a continuing legal education program on the law and policy of a sustainable food system:
Food and agriculture affects everyone. Find out about legal and policy developments at the local and national level and how they relate to sustainability. Wendell Berry, noted author, environmentalist, and farmer, will provide an introduction. Speakers will address topics of community based agriculture, food labeling and regulation, and genetically modified organisms.
In addition to Wendell Berry, I will be sharing the stage with Cathy Franck of the Real Food WatchClub, LLC, Susan L. Hamilton of Metropolitan Louisville's Economic Development Department, and Sarah Fritschner of the Farm-to-Table Program. My contribution to the program will consist of remarks derived from Beyond Food and Evil, 56 Duke L.J. 1581 (2007). I am grateful to section chair Robert J. Ehrler and to section vice-chair Cathy Franck for the opportunity to take part in this program.
Practicing lawyers seeking 2.0 CLE hours will be charged either $75 (LBA members) or $150 (nonmembers). There is a special student rate of $12, which includes lunch. For more information, please contact Lisa Maddox.
