On Thursday, October 18th, the student-run Food and Drug Law Association
staged an event in which student volunteers argued the facts in the case LAM v. General Mills in advance of Food Day on October 24th.
Four students served as a panel of judges for the event, and student attorneys argued the appeal of a lower court ruling. The facts of the case centered on the claim that General Mills snack products Fruit Roll-Ups and Fruit by the Foot were “made with real fruit” and whether such claims were misleading to consumers.
The accompanying video offers a look at the compelling arguments made by the student attorneys on both sides as well as the ruling issued by the student judges.
