Food and Drug Law Journal 2021 Symposium: The Path Forward: Seeking Racial Equity in Food and Drug Law; Submit Abstracts by June 28, 2021

Food and Drug Law

The Food and Drug Law Institute, in collaboration with the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law and the Georgetown University Law Center, is soliciting legal scholarship on topics addressing racial equity and inclusion in food and drug law, policy, and regulation. Submissions might examine causes and opportunities to overcome racial injustice or provide specific analysis of actions for building equity into food and drug law or address other topics exploring the past, present, and future of racial equity in this field. Like the Food and Drug Law Journal, this Symposium will focus on topics within the purview of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but submissions can address other regulators in addition to FDA.
