Food Law Course

The University of Ottawa Faculty of Law will be offering a brand new course on Food Law in the Winter 2018 term. The course, co-taught by Professor McLeod-Kilmurray and doctoral student Angela Lee, is one of the first of its kind in Canada. 

The course is intended to provide a basic overview of food law and policy in Canada. In addition to reviewing the primary acts and actors relevant to this area, the course will survey major topics covering all aspects of the food chain, from production to consumption. This will include topics such as agricultural law and policy, food safety, food and health labelling, marketing and advertising, public health, and the practice of food law in Canada.
