“As more and more people are becoming deeply concerned about what they’re eating and what it means for our health, the economy, the environment, and social justice, participants in a recent gathering at Harvard Law School hope to spark the growth of a nationwide student network for making significant contributions to the emerging field of food law and policy…
The Food Law Student Leadership Summit is just one of many initiatives for the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic. Over the coming months, FLPC will work with interested students to develop a national leadership structure, regional networks, a website and hub for resources, and cross-network projects.
‘The feedback we’ve received from attendees about the Summit has been overwhelmingly positive,’ said Broad Leib. ‘It’s encouraging to hear so many law students say they feel empowered, inspired, and ready to take action as a result of coming together. I look forward to seeing how the work we have begun here grows and reaches new law students in the coming years, and to helping to build a food law student network across the nation.'”
