Food for Thought: A Food Law CLE

  • Southern Food & Beverage Museum 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard New Orleans, LA, 70113 United States (map)

Tulane University Law School, Continuing Legal Education and the Culinaria Center for Food Law, Policy, and Culture present Food for Thought: A Food Law Continuing Legal Education Program.

NatFAB's Culinaria Center for Food Law, Policy, and Culture is partnering with Tulane University Law School Continuing Legal Education (CLE) to host "Food for Thought: A Food Law CLE" program. Since Food Law is a niche practice area, the event is constructed to appeal to both non-lawyers and lawyers whose practice may not directly relate to food. Besides Ethics and Professionalism hours, we will have panelists discussing public health, workers' rights, processed food labeling, and novel coastal protection funding possibilities. The idea is that each hour brings a new lens through which attendees can view impacts on food, water, and the environment. 

Earn 6.25 Hours of CLE Credits including 1.0 Professionalism and 1.0 Ethics. Lunch is included.

  • CLE Credit: $325
  • Non-profit/Academic $225
  • Law Student (with ID) $0
  • Law School Faculty/Staff (with ID) $0
  • General Admission $10
