Hi all:

I am sending some information about an exciting opportunity to learn about food law during the summer in Italy. Please see below for a description of the program and enrollment information.

The deadline to submit interest is this Friday, February 5. Apologies for the late notice, but if you are interested and need an extension, please let me know and I can contact Professor Wirth.

Thank you and hope all is well!



Boston College Law School is offering a 3-credit summer course on the International Law of Food in Parma, Italy.  Law students (both J.D. and LL.M. candidates) from any other law school are welcome in the course.

This is one of the few, if not the only, course on this area of rapidly emerging importance to the study of food law.  The timing of this 4-week course, May 29-June 26, has been specifically arranged so as to leave law students the bulk of the summer for employment and other activities.

Taught by Boston College Law Professor David Wirth, who has extensive academic and practical experience in the field, the course is offfered in the city considered the food capital of Italy, Europe, and the world.  The course is also of general interest, covering the fundamentals of international and regulatory law both in the United States and abroad.

Attached are:

-           a flier; and

-          a draft syllabus.

The deadline for expressing interest, by initiating an application, is February 5.  The user-friendly application is available here<http://www.bc.edu/offices/international/progsummer-new/nonbcsummerapp.html>(http://www.bc.edu/offices/international/progsummer-new/nonbcsummerapp.html in case the link fails).

There is no need for approval of applications from law students.  You need not write the essay on the application, although you should identify yourself as a law student and the name of your institution in that space in the application so that it can be considered complete.

If you are potentially interested in the course but uncertain about whether you can actually attend, it is worthwhile to initiate an application before February 5 so as to reserve a place in the course.

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact David Wirth, david.wirth at bc.edu<mailto:david.wirth at bc.edu>, or Brian Fleming, brian.fleming26 at gmail.com<mailto:brian.fleming26 at gmail.com>, a student in the course the last time it was taught.  Professor Wirth will be glad to work with you to assure that you obtain credit from your home institution.
