A slick looking blog that combines useful compliance insights with RSS feeds skimming the best news into manageable topic specific sub categories and a conversation monitor picking up everything that's hot in the comments below the posts.


A broader, life science offering covering topical and interesting subjects in environmental law, natural resources law, agricultural law, food and drug law, biotechnology, neuroscience, behavioural psychology and evolutionary biology, health law and bioethics.

They say it all when they state "we only post content when we have something of value to offer to the community". In depth posts and easy comment access make this a useful platform for following conversation.

There are some great resources on this blog if you can pick through the ads; our verdict - persevere, or subscribe by email!

Well thought out categories, some useful tracker tools and a detailed look at a wide variety of FDA activities make this both interesting and useful to read. It is authored by Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C., the largest dedicated food and drug law firm in the US.
