Journal of Food Law & Policy

Publication Opportunity:

White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health

The Journal of Food Law & Policy is pleased to announce that its Spring 2023 issue will be devoted to the historic White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. Through this publishing opportunity, the Journal hopes to extend the conference discussion, addressing challenges and moving forward on solutions.

Founded in 2005, the student-edited Journal of Food Law & Policy at the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville, Arkansas, is a recognized leader in publishing articles and essays on law and policy issues that impact our food system. The Journal’s work is supported by the other aspects of the Law School’s expertise including the LL.M. Program in Agricultural and Food Law, the Indigenous Food & Agriculture Initiative, and the Food & Agriculture Impact Project.

The Journal will accept article and essay submissions from October 26 through January 9, 2023 with rolling acceptances provided until the issue is full. Acceptance will be determined by the Board of Editors of the Journal.

The Journal seeks submissions that provide analysis, propose initiatives, and offer thoughtful commentary on any issue related to the conference. Articles that are 20,000 words or less and essays that are 2,500 words or less are preferred. All submissions are expected to be factually correct, well-written, and cited to authoritative sources. The Journal follows the Harvard Bluebook form of citation, and while staff editors can assist with that form, all source information should be included with the submission.

Staff editors at the Journal will begin work on the issue in January with an anticipated publication date of May 2023. The Journal is published online through the University of Arkansas ScholarWorks, on Westlaw, and on HeinOnline. A printed issue is also published approximately six weeks after online publication. Reprinted copies are available to authors and the full issue is available by subscription or for the single-issue price of $20.

Submissions should be emailed, attached as a Word document, to FLSubmit@uark.edu, indicating that the submission is for the special White House Conference issue. For questions, email FoodLaw@uark.edu.
