Sustainably feeding a growing population with healthy diets is a pressing global challenge. The role of meat in such diets is a deeply contentious issue that has public health, animal welfare, food systems, farming, and environmental experts and advocates weighing in on the issue. As we learn more about the impacts of meat production and consumption on human and environmental health and animal welfare, meat consumption is changing. In North America, eaters are heeding recommendations to reduce, replace, or eliminate meat in their diets; however, global meat production and consumption continues to rise.

A panel of experts will explore these issues and the future of meat at the Academy of Food Law and Policy 2nd Annual Conference at Georgia State University in Atlanta on December 10, 2019. Food, agricultural, and environmental law and policy experts will discuss the costs, benefits, challenges, and opportunities of conventional meat production and consumption, as well as the emerging cell-cultured meat industry which is creating meat directly from cells rather than from animal slaughter. Panelists include Professor Steph Tai, Dean Margaret Sova McCabe, Professor Ermias Kebreab, and Meera Zassenhaus.

The Conference will be held at Georgia State University in Atlanta on December 10, 2019. Attendees of the panel discussion may receive 1.5 CLE credit hours. In addition to the panel discussion, the Conference will feature works-in-progress workshops and poster presentations to connect the Food Law and Policy scholarly community and provide meaningful and in depth explorations of food law in multiple formats. Submit abstract proposals by September 27 at the abstract website. Specific information about the conference, hotel options, additional sponsors, and calls for papers and posters is available at the conference website. Registration, which includes conference participation and breakfast, lunch and dinner at the conference,  is $150 for members and $200 for non-members Register here by Nov. 25, 2019. If you have a financial hardship and want to explore possible low or no cost registration options, please contact the organizers at aflpconference@gmail.com.

I am heading to Seattle this morning for an end-of-life conference. Unfortunately, that means I am missing a hearing in the Minnesota legislature on a medical aid in dying bill. Barbara Coombs Lee and others will testify.
