This offering is an examination of the legal mechanisms by which the federal government regulates the manufacture and sale of food, dietary supplements, drugs, medical devices, cosmetics and tobacco products. The course will focus upon the statutory authority given by Congress to the Food and Drug Administration, the FDA's implementation of that authority through the promulgation of regulations, and the agency's enforcement of the statute. Proposals for reform will be critically evaluated.
