Dear Colleagues,

The Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic is now accepting applications for summer internships. Please share this information with your students and encourage them to apply.

Here's a summary of the program:

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. 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. FLPC interns apply their knowledge from the law school classroom to real-world situations.

Examples of projects 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, identifying and breaking down legal barriers inhibiting small-scale and sustainable food production, and drafting state and federal legislation to reduce the amount of wasted food.


Thank you!

Nicole and the FLPC Team
