Farming And Eating, Margot J. Pollans 2018 Pace University

Farming And Eating, Margot J. Pollans

Journal of Food Law & Policy

There has long been tension between rural and urban communities, often referred to as the urban-rural divide. Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has exacerbated this divide. However, urban and rural groups rely on each other; farmers need eaters in densely populated areas for markets and eaters need farmers for food. In recognition of this codependency, this essay proposes a coalition of farmers, food consumers, and environmentalists to lead agricultural policy and stop the divide between farming and eating.

Will The Trump Administration Support Farmers Facing Fsma Compliance?, Sophia Kruszewski

Journal of Food Law & Policy

In keeping with Donald Trump’s campaign promises of cutting burdensome regulations, this essay recommends two Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations that should be removed or altered. The two regulations are for irrigation water quality standards and third-party audits. This essay argues that these regulations are unnecessary in keeping with the goals of FSMA and are burdensome for farmers of all scales, but especially small and very small scale farmers.

After The White House Garden: Food Justice In The Age Of Trump, Garrett M. Broad 2018 Fordham Univeristy

After The White House Garden: Food Justice In The Age Of Trump, Garrett M. Broad

Journal of Food Law & Policy

It’s debatable whether President and First Lady Obama’s White House garden was a positive or negative symbol to the community food justice movement—but it did send a signal. This essay speculates what, if anything, the Trump administration will signal to these community food justice activists. It also recommends a potential strategy for grassroots food justice advocates fighting for already limited resources.


The Butz Stops Here: Why The Food Movement Needs To Rethink Agricultural History, Nathan A. Rosenberg, Bryce Wilson Stucki 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Butz Stops Here: Why The Food Movement Needs To Rethink Agricultural History, Nathan A. Rosenberg, Bryce Wilson Stucki

Journal of Food Law & Policy

From the 1890s to the 1930s, rural Americans played a vital role in radical leftist politics. While specialists know this history well, the public tends to know a folk history, written by figures associated with contemporary food movements. This folk history rests on several key myths, which cover different periods of modern history from the New Deal to the present. This essay challenges these myths to reveal the causes and extent of the suffering endured by rural families in the 20th century, which in turn, decimated the populist left. A reconsideration of the history of agricultural policy will help food-system ...

Journal Of Food Law & Policy - Volume 13 Spring 2017, Journal Editors 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Journal Of Food Law & Policy - Volume 13 Spring 2017, Journal Editors

Journal of Food Law & Policy

After Donald Trump’s victory last November, we put out a call for brief essays examining what happened, what’s likely to happen, and what policymakers and advocates can do to keep pushing forward. The response was extraordinary. We received thought provoking submissions on a number of important topics, including antitrust, trade policy, food safety, and labor, among others. Instead of running a standard issue comprised of legal articles—with essays as an accompaniment—we decided to reverse the format and devote the bulk of this issue to these essays. The result is a penetrating and timely look at the ...


The Price Tag On Designer Babies: Market Share Liability, Boston College Law Review Staff 2018 Boston College Law School

The Price Tag On Designer Babies: Market Share Liability, Boston College Law Review Staff

Boston College Law Review

The prospect of genetically modifying humans has loomed over the public for decades. Now, science fiction is becoming reality. New technology and expanding research are positioned to make genetic alteration a routine, pre-conception appointment. For several years, China has been experimenting with germline editing on non-viable human embryos. In April 2016, the UK also approved a group of scientists to begin similar research. In the United States, genetic engineering is a multibillion-dollar industry. Although ethical debates over human genetic modification have checked the industry, the potential for clinical trials has become a reality as companies race to dominate the technology ...


Remaking Making: Integrating Self-Replicating Technologies With The Exhaustion Doctrine, Adanna Uwazurike 2018 Boston College Law School

Remaking Making: Integrating Self-Replicating Technologies With The Exhaustion Doctrine, Adanna Uwazurike

Boston College Law Review

Self-replicating technologies such as genetically modified organisms have unquestionably improved the farming industry. In order to ensure continued innovation in this area, the law has increasingly established protections for this technology. Although the exhaustion doctrine serves as a limit to a patent holder’s rights, the application of the current patent infringement regime may be over-inclusive as self-replicating technologies continue to advance. This Note identifies Bowman v. Monsanto as a recent example of how self-replicating patented products could lead to blanket infringement liability, including for innocent infringers. This Note recommends that the definition of “making” be redefined to include only ...


“Warning: Use May Result In Cruel And Unusual Punishment”: How Administrative Law And Adequate Warning Labels Can Bring About The Demise Of Lethal Injection, Julia Eaton 2018 Boston College Law School

“Warning: Use May Result In Cruel And Unusual Punishment”: How Administrative Law And Adequate Warning Labels Can Bring About The Demise Of Lethal Injection, Julia Eaton

Boston College Law Review

Lethal injection, although currently the preferred method of execution in the United States, causes more botched executions than any other method. Despite recorded instances of extreme pain and suffering, the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) does not regulate lethal injection drugs for safety and effectiveness because their use occurs “off-label” and thus outside of the purview of the FDA’s regulatory scope. Challengers to the FDA’s lack of regulation have thus far been unsuccessful in the courts due to the deference that the courts give to agency decisions. This Note discusses the ways in which administrative law ...

The Act amends Georgia’s controlled-substances statutes to expand medical provider requirements to record prescription drug information in an electronic prescription drug monitoring program database (PDMP).
