Subject: 2017 Food Law Student Leadership Summit

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that this year's Food Law Student Leadership Summit is now accepting applications<http://foodlawstudentnetwork.org/summit/>. The 2017 Summit will be held November 17-19th at UCLA School of Law in Los Angeles, California, co-hosted by UCLA Law School's Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy and the Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC), with support from the Food Law Student Network. Please share this announcement with your students and encourage them to apply!

The Food Law Student Leadership Summit is the only conference to convene students from around the country who share a passion for food law. The 2016 Summit at Drake Law School in Des Moines, Iowa, brought together 80 law students from nearly 50 law schools and two dozen food law faculty, experts, and special guests, building on the success of the inaugural Summit held at Harvard Law School in 2015.

Following the success of the first two Summits, FLPC has teamed up with UCLA School of Law's Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy to host the third Summit, which will reflect the Southern California setting, the clients and partners of UCLA's Resnick Program, and the region's unique role in our food system. Participants will:

*         deepen their understanding of key food law and policy issues;

*         hear from advocates, food producers, academics, policy practitioners, policy makers, and more;

*         work with a small group to develop and present policy solutions;

*         gain valuable resources and insights for promoting food law and policy at their schools;

*         tour local food organizations and food innovators; and

*         establish lasting connections with dedicated law students from across the country.

We are also pleased to continue our work with the Food Law Student Network. Founded at the 2015 Summit, the Network channels growing student interest in food law and policy and addresses the needs for greater student resources and opportunities. The Network maintains a website<http://www.foodlawstudentnetwork.org> for outreach and community building and we encourage you to check it out! Members of the Network are also actively involved in planning the Summit and using it as a platform to build on the momentum from the past two years and engage new members.

Hotel accommodations and all meals in Los Angeles will be provided for all admitted students. A transportation stipend will be provided to cover a portion of student travel costs. We also encourage students to seek additional funding from their home institution.

For more information and application requirements, see the attached announcement and visit the Food Law Student Leadership Summit website<http://www.chlpi.org/food-law-and-policy/food-law-student-leadership-summit/>. Please distribute this announcement to anyone who may be interested in applying to the Summit and please let me know if you have any questions.

Many thanks,
