Why study Food Law?

Food law is a dynamic area of law, heavily influenced by developments at an EU level. Over the years the course has recruited students from all over the globe and from many different backgrounds. A typical student may be an Environmental Health Officer, or work in the food industry, or be a practising lawyer or a consultant.
As such the course is specifically designed for lawyers and non-legal professionals with interests in the food law field, particularly those involved in the food industry.

Many students have a great deal of practical knowledge of food law and the impetus for studying the course is to obtain a qualification which confirms the breadth and depth of this existing knowledge, and to have the opportunity to look behind the law in order to address underlying policy issues.

• food production
