Food and Agriculture Clinic
About This Class
In the Food and Agriculture Clinic, students collaborate with strategic partner organizations to create and disseminate innovative and practical legal resources, including guides, toolkits, templates, websites, infographics and white papers. These resources will support (1) targeted constituencies engaged in sustainable food and agriculture (farmers, food producers, food entrepreneurs, consumers, legislators and advocates) and (2) the expansion of sustainable food and agriculture markets. Students participate in all aspects of project development, identifying and pursuing potential projects and partners, grant-writing, executing projects, and marketing and disseminating their information products through partners, networks and the creative use of social media. The clinic is entrepreneurial, always seeking new ways to innovate and support innovation in the evolving agricultural economy. Students will also provide public comments on proposed regulations and participate in relevant state or federal task forces.
