Food-related litigation has surged in recent years, with a significant increase in cases attacking labels on the basis claims about the quality of ingredients, or claims a food is “healthy” or “natural.” These developments have evoked considerable discussion of the emerging “Food Court” and its implications for consumers, industry, and lawmakers - but much uncertainty remains. This conference will bring together practitioners, academics, and law students to examine emerging issues in food litigation, its broader context, and the role for litigation in policy-making.
