Online Education in Food Laws and Regulations

The Institute for Food Laws and Regulations (IFLR) at Michigan State University offers 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 graduate-level courses are fully accredited and are designed for food industry professionals and regulators. Students may take as few or as many courses as they desire. Students may earn a "Certificate in International Food Law" or "Certificate in United States Food Law" after completing twelve qualifying credits (usually four courses).

Enrollment is fast and easy through MSU Lifelong Education. MSU’s Lifelong Education Program requires no application fee, no college transcripts, and no entrance exam.

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.

You may work toward a Master of Laws (LL.M.) or a Master of Jurisprudence (M.J.) degree in Global Food Law. The LL.M. degree is designed for lawyers and the M.J. degree is designed for other professionals working in the food and agriculture industries, food safety, law, government, and other areas involving international food law.
