There's no time like the present for lifelong learning

The Institute for Food Laws and Regulations (IFLR) at Michigan State University offers U.S. and international food law courses taught online by an international network of food science, academic, and legal professionals, who understand the complex nature of food laws and how they impact the flow of food and agricultural products across national boundaries.

Our lead program is the International Food Law Certificate, which students earn upon the successful completion of 12 credits via Michigan State University’s Lifelong Education Program.

MSU’s Lifelong Education Program requires no application fee, no entrance exam, no book purchases and all courses are fully accredited. Best of all, sign-up is quick and easy.

A typical course will detail the food regulation practices of a specific subject area, such as Codex Alimentarius, or provide a detailed examination of the food laws and regulatory practices of a specific country or region such as the United States, European Union, Latin America, Canada, and Asia.

In conjunction with the certificate program, IFLR partners with the MSU College of Law in the Global Food Law master’s program. The Master of Laws (LL.M.) and Master of Jurisprudence (M.J.) degrees are designed for lawyers and other professionals working in the food and agriculture industries, food safety, law, government, and other areas involving international food law.
