I'll Discuss My Book, Class-Action Food Lawsuits in Trio of Midwest Law-School Appearances Next Month

Fresh off a talk earlier this month at the University of Washington Law School, where I discussed my critically acclaimed book Biting the Hands that Feed Us: How Fewer, Smarter Laws Would Make Our Food System More Sustainable, I’ll be spending several days on the road next month to speak at three of the Midwest’s best law schools.

On March 5, I’ll give a book talk at the University of Missouri Law School in Columbia. Later in the month, on March 28, I’ll give another book talk, this one at University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor. Both talks are sponsored by the law schools’ respective Federalist Society chapters.

In the middle of the month, on March 16, I’ll take part in what’s sure to be a fascinating symposium put on by the Loyola Consumer Law Review at Loyola University Law School in Chicago. The symposium, "A Classless Act: Have Class Actions Lost Their Effectiveness as a Consumer Protection Tool?", focuses on the abuse and diminishing effectiveness of class-action lawsuits.

I’ll sit on a mid-day panel, "Class Actions That Give Bad Names: A Look at What Some Call Frivolous Litigation," alongisde Loyola Law School Prof. Jim Morsch. My talk will focus on class-action litigation targeting food makers, including suits targeting Wrigley and Subway. Later on, I’ll contribute an article which expands on my remarks to the Consumer Law Review’s 2018 Symposium Issue.

I’m grateful for these invitations to speak to and with law students and faculty members next month!
