The Global Center for Legal Innovations in Food Environments has developed seminar and practicum courses as well as a series of short courses and virtual trainings on healthy food law and policy, held at Georgetown Law during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Regulating Alcohol, Tobacco & Food in International and Comparative Law (Law 1209 v02)
This course will give students the opportunity to work with Georgetown Law’s O’Neill Institute and its external partners in government and civil society to gain experience in using law to prevent noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes. Law is a key tool to reduce the prevalence of key NCD risk factors: tobacco and alcohol use, physical inactivity, and unhealthy diets.
