ISSN 0004-1831

Published quarterly, the Arkansas Law Review has as its primary objective the dissemination of scholarly and authoritative articles on significant legal issues. Its Editorial Board serves the Arkansas legal community and beyond by publishing scholarship of state, national, and international importance. The Arkansas Law Review was established with the publication of the first issue in the fall semester of the 1946-1947 academic year.

Prior to the establishment of the Arkansas Law Review, the Arkansas Bar Association expressed interest in the creation of a law review and appointed committees to explore the possibility. Shortly thereafter, a permanent plan was formulated under which the law review was made a joint undertaking of the law school and the Arkansas Bar Association. Today, the law review is an established part of the legal community in Arkansas and it is cited and relied upon by lawyers and courts throughout the nation. This is a collection of scholarly articles and student work that have been published in the Arkansas Law Review.

As such, we are dedicated to showcasing emotional truths and authenticity. We have committed ourselves and our magazine to allowing people to dig as deep as they can until they find their own rare and beautiful gem.

Journal of Food Law & Policy (School of Law)

ISSN 1942-9762

The Journal of Food Law & Policy has long been recognized as a leader in publishing articles and essays on food law and its impact on society. When the Journal’s inaugural issue was published in 2005, no other student-edited Journal was devoted to this important topic and few law schools recognized the emerging discipline of food law & policy. Since that time, the Journal has led the nation in recognizing the significance of studying the legal framework of our food system. Food law & policy as a discipline has emerged as an accepted field of study and a popular part of law school curriculums across the world.

Today, the Journal continues its efforts to publish and promote the very best legal scholarship in food law and policy. Article topics include food labeling, food safety, consumer interest in food policy, the environmental effects of food production, agricultural law and its impact on our food system, global food security, food assistance, nutrition policy, farmed animal welfare, international food law and regulation, the regulation of biotechnology and other new food technologies, and a wide variety of other dynamic issues affecting food law and policy.

The Journal is published twice a year and is edited by dedicated law students at the University of Arkansas School of Law. The School of Law is noted for its work in the law of food and agriculture, with a variety of food law courses offered, a specialized LL.M. Program in Agricultural and Food Law, the Indigenous Food & Agriculture Initiative, and the Food Recovery Project.
