I’m currently sitting in my Guest Researcher office at Uppsala University in Sweden, one of Europe’s oldest universities. While I got completely lost walking from my residence to the train station, I’ll absolutely loved taking the train to Uppsala and walking to my office. I then had coffee/tea with my Swedish colleagues discussing my time in China and how they could attract more American doctoral students to their environmental law program. In meeting and greeting with so many of their faculty already, I’ve been excited that so many seem interested in attending my talk on Wednesday on comparative approaches to food eco-labeling.


Just returned from a fabulously long European lunch where we discussed comparative jurisprudence related to treating state actions as public versus private, as well as different labeling policies between European states and American states and what actions would violate EU law or the American commerce clause.
