Food Advertising, Labeling, and Litigation Conference

September 25–26, 2024   In-Person & Virtual Event

Overview

Debate and public confusion abound about what manufacturers and retailers can and should say about the products we put into our bodies, often resulting in lengthy and time-consuming lawsuits or government actions.  Join FDLI for this two-day conference to learn from and network with leading practitioners and thought leaders in the food and dietary supplement industries, law firms, consumer protection organizations, and regulatory agencies, all of whom will address the biggest issues and challenges in product advertising, labeling, and litigation.

Call for Proposals

 Call for Proposals—BE CREATIVE!

FDLI invites you to submit a proposal for a session for the Food Advertising, Labeling, and Litigation Conference. Your submissions and input are integral to ensuring that the most timely and pertinent topics are covered at the conference. Topics should address issues relating to litigation, policy, and regulation as it impacts any and all areas of product marketing, advertising, and labeling. Topics can be related specifically to food or dietary supplements or be relevant to both.

Proposal Submission Guidelines

  • Topics should be at an advanced level.
  • Topics that include a variety of perspectives and viewpoints, including government, industry, private attorneys, academics, and public interest, are preferred.
  • FDLI is committed to supporting, promoting, and celebrating diversity and inclusion in the food and drug law community. To that end, proposals addressing systematic or historical impacts on health care disparity and racial equity in relation to all areas of the FDA-regulated community are strongly encouraged.
  • We prefer submissions to include a reasonably detailed and thoughtful title for and description of the proposed session.
