 Passing along for any interested students:

The Harvard Law School Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation (CHLPI) is
seeking summer interns for its 2015 summer clinic semester in its Health Law
and Policy Clinic and its Food Law and Policy Clinic.
We are accepting applications on a rolling basis and will review applications
starting in January 2015.
For questions about the summer internship program, please contact
chlpi at law.harvard.edu<mailto:chlpi at law.harvard.edu>

The 2015 program will run from Tuesday, May 26th through Friday, July 31st for
a minimum of 40 hours per week. We have some flexibility with regard to start
and end dates as long as summer interns make at least an eight-week
This internship program is primarily for law students. However, in previous
summers we have taken other graduate and undergraduate students who show a
keen interest and relevant experience in the field.
Summer interns are unpaid. They are eligible for all public interest
fellowships including law school summer public interest funding programs that
may be available through their schools (these vary by school) and EJA. CHLPI
program staff will support accepted candidates with whatever paperwork is
needed from the sponsoring organization for these applications.
The CHLPI summer internship program takes place in the CHLPI office located in
the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston.

Information about the Food Law and Policy Clinic:
The Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC) aims to increase access to healthy
foods, prevent diet-related diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, and
assist small and sustainable farmers and producers in breaking into new
commercial food markets.
Summer interns in the Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC) have the unique
opportunity to engage in action-based learning to gain a deeper understanding
of the complex challenges facing our current food system. Interns get hands-on
experience conducting legal and policy research for individuals, community
groups, and government agencies on a wide range of food law and policy issues,
and are challenged to develop creative legal and policy solutions to pressing
food issues, applying their knowledge from the law school classroom to real-
world situations. Examples of project areas include providing policy guidance
and advocacy trainings to state and local food policy councils, assessing how
food safety regulations could be amended to increase economic opportunities
for small local producers, recommending policies to increase access to healthy
food for low-income communities, and identifying and breaking down legal
barriers inhibiting small-scale and sustainable food production.
FLPC interns have the opportunity to practice a number of valuable skills,
including legal research and writing, drafting legislation and regulations,
commenting on agency actions, public speaking and trainings, and community
organizing, among others. Interns also have the opportunity to travel to meet
with clients; for example, FLPC travels to work in places like Mississippi,
Tennessee, Navajo Nation, and La Paz, Bolivia.

Applicants interested in either the Health Law or Food Law and Policy Clinic
should submit the following materials to chlpi at law.harvard.edu<mailto:chlpi at law.harvard.edu>. Please
indicate in your email to which clinic you are applying. If you are interested
in both clinics, please rank them in order of preference.
