US (AR): Journal of Food Law and Policy launches website

The University of Arkansas School of Law Journal of Food Law and Policy has gone digital. The new site launched this week and features the journal's vol. 13, no. 1 issue.

"The editorial board and I are thrilled to have this new online presence," said Phillip Treat, third-year law student and the publication's editor-in-chief. "The journal has long been recognized as a leader in publishing articles and essays on food law and its impact on society, and this site will make the information more readily available to the public, policy makers and the legal community."

When the journal's inaugural issue was published in 2005, no other student-edited journal was devoted to this important topic and few law schools recognized the emerging discipline of food law and policy.

Since that time, the journal has led the nation in recognizing the significance of studying the legal framework of our food system. Food law and policy as a discipline has emerged as an accepted field of study and a popular part of law school curricula around the world.

The journal is published twice a year and is edited by some of the top law students at the University of Arkansas School of Law. The school is noted for its work in the law of food and agriculture, with several food law courses offered and a Master of Laws in Agricultural and Food Law, the nation's first advanced law degree in agricultural and food law, founded more than 30 years ago.

The degree is also the first online law program in the state and the first Master of Laws, commonly referred to as an LL.M., in Agricultural and Food Law in the country. While most online LL.M. programs rely on asynchronous instruction, distance LL.M. candidates at the University of Arkansas School of Law join classroom discussions via live video conference anywhere in the world with internet access.

The degree may be completed entirely online, entirely on campus or through a combination of courses, and as of fall 2017, all students pay in-state tuition for online courses.
