Publications

The Food and Drug Law Institute publishes a broad spectrum of resources for practitioners, scholars, students, policy makers, and others interested in diverse areas of food and drug law and policy. Our periodicals, books, and primers offer timely coverage of emerging issues, policy debates, scholarly research, and practice guidance. 

Now in its 70th edition, the premier scholarly quarterly Food and Drug Law Journal is co-published with the Georgetown University Law Center. Update magazine, available free to members in both print and electronic editions, provides concise articles on cutting-edge food and drug law issues. The monthly Food and Drug Policy Forum, complimentary to FDLI members, promotes research, dialogue, and recommendations on complex policy issues. 

Primers offer practical, how-to guidance on current food and drug law topics, and FDLI’s book publishing program ensures comprehensive desk reference material is available for use in the office and the classroom.
