Food Law Student Leadership Summit 2017

The Food Law Student Leadership Summit convenes law students from around the country who share a passion for creating an equitable, transparent, healthy, and sustainable food system. Food law and policy is a fast-growing field within the legal profession and society at large.

This year’s Summit is co-hosted by Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic and UCLA School of Law’s Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy, with support from the Food Law Student Network Leadership Committee.The Summit will build on the success of the past years, while reflecting 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.
