  • Welcome to the Section

    Welcome to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Law Section 

    More than 65 years ago, the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Law Section became one of the first sections to be formally organized by the New York State Bar Association. During the ensuing years, this group - the first organization in the country to be composed of in-house, law firm, government and trade association attorneys practicing food and drug law - has been a focal point for practitioners in this specialty. We welcome you to our expanded website!
