Welcome to the Institute for Food Laws and Regulations (IFLR) at Michigan State University. IFLR’s mission is to sponsor education on global food laws and regulation.
Our lead program is the International Food Law Internet Certificate Program, winner of the Excellence Award in College and University Distance Education from the American Distance Education Consortium. This Internet distance education program consists of a series of international food law courses taught completely over the Internet by an international network of food science, academic, and legal professionals, who understand the legal complexities of the food laws and how they impact the flow of food and agricultural products across national boundaries.
We are a proud partner with the Michigan State University College of Law in the Masters Program in Global Food Law. The program’s online Master of Laws (LL.M.) and Master of Jurisprudence (M.J.) degree in global food law are designed for lawyers and other professionals working in the food and agriculture industries, food safety, law, government, and other areas involving international food law. The LL.M. program is aimed at students who have earned a Juris Doctor (J.D.) or Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.). The M.J. program is designed for those without a law degree, such as students in other disciplines, policymakers, government officials, business executives, scientists, and other professionals.
NEW Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Major Rules
Students may enroll in one (1) course or all three (3) courses, which run consecutively.
These short courses provide food industry and regulatory professionals with a legal perspective on the FDA FSMA Rules. Topics to be covered include the history, law, policy, and legal application of the FSMA Rules. The goal of these short courses is to equip students with the knowledge and skills to: (1) analyze current and future FDA guidance documents; (2) better predict legal risks associated with food law litigation; and (3) evaluate the limitations of FDA’s authority under FSMA.
