Please join us at the next Food Law Student Leadership Summit to be hosted March 31-April 2, 2023. The Food Law Student Leadership Summit (FLSLS) is an annual event presented by Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic and a host school with support from the National Food Law Student Network. The FLSLS brings together food law students across the nation, particularly in areas with fewer food law opportunities, to learn, network, and engage with those working to transform our food systems. This year’s FLSLS will be held in conjunction with the New Directions in Environmental Law (NDEL) Conference, which is held annually at Yale University. By convening academics and practitioners, NDEL brings together a new community to solve environmental challenges.
The joint NDEL/FLSLS conference will be hosted by Yale Law School, Yale School of the Environment, the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, and the Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic. The theme is “Rethinking Resilience,” and the conference will cover law and policy considerations around a variety of topics, including ocean and coastal justice, food sovereignty, Indigenous knowledge, closed loop supply chains, and the Farm Bill.
The New Directions in Environmental Law Conference is a traditional conference, open to the public at no cost. Law students interested in the FLSLS component of the conference can apply to receive a travel stipend, lodging in New Haven, and a variety of special opportunities for networking and professional development throughout the weekend.
Applications for the FLSLS travel funding are due January 3, 2023. Find the application here.
