On Friday, October 21, 2005, The Center for Informed Food Choices and Loyola Law School presented an event entitled: "Food Marketing to Children and the Law."
With rising childhood obesity rates, public health advocates are becoming increasingly concerned with the impact of junk food marketing to children. Yet legal questions loom large about how to address the issue. This cutting-edge symposium featured leading experts from around the country speaking on such critical topics as: the commercial speech doctrine, industry self-regulation, litigation as a tool, and lessons learned from the tobacco wars.
Articles from the symposium are available in the May 2006 issue of the Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review.
