Food Justice & Sustainability




2018 Summer - Term 2

About This Class

​This intensive seminar focuses on how impact litigation and political advocacy can be used to develop a sustainable food system. We will examine the existing national and local regulatory structures to consider how they facilitate and create barriers to sustainable agriculture; debate current alternative proposals, with a particular focus on local, regional and statebased policy proposals; and strategize ways in which advocates and litigators can push reforms to generate a more open, humane, environmentally sound, safe, and just food system.
