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 seeks submissions that provide analysis, propose initiatives, and offer thoughtful commentary on any food law & policy issue. 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 articles should conform as much as possible. Staff editors check all sources for accuracy, proper attribution and citation format.

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.
