Today, the Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC) releases the fourth edition of the Food Law and Policy Career Guide, updated for 2017. Created with Harvard Food Law Society and the Food Law Student Network, the career guide includes new information and opportunities in a range of areas of interest to those looking to build careers in food law and policy.
The fourth edition encompasses employment opportunities at universities, government agencies, non-governmental organizations and research institutes, international organizations and agencies, law firms, and consulting and consultancy firms. It also includes information on fellowships and grants, and listservs that can help link job seekers to recently announced openings, as well as other breaking news about our food system.
There’s been incredible growth in the area of food law and policy since the release of the last career guide. While we have attempted to make this guide as exhaustive as possible, there may be new opportunities that are not reflected. Please let us know about these opportunities so we can make the next edition even more comprehensive.
We encourage recent graduates, current students seeking internships, and those just curious about this area of the law to take advantage of the wide range of information in the guide, and to share it with their network to drive awareness of this useful resource!
Additionally, for current students interested in the area of food law and policy, FLPC is now accepting applications for its 2018 Summer Interns Program. The program will run from Monday, May 21st to Friday, July 27th. Summer interns in the Food Law and Policy Clinic have the unique opportunity to engage in action-based learning to gain a deeper understanding of the complex challenges facing our current food system. For more information about the Summer Interns Program and how to apply, please see the full posting here.
