Author's Spotlight Ben Boron

This week we feature Roseann B. Termini, B.S., Ed. M., J.D. who has extensive experience in food and drug law. Throughout her legal career, which spans more than 30 years, and even prior to her law career, she has pursued her food and drug law passion.

Ms. Termini continues to update her book because she believes it is critical to impart the latest law on pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices, foods, dietary supplements, personal care, veterinary and tobacco products regulation, which is constantly evolving with new cases and new regulations. Even professional considerations, ethical issues and politics are covered.

This edition provides a concise roadmap for the reader of a complex area of law and contains separate subject-specific volumes so the reader can choose the area of most interest.
