About the Food Law Student Network

The Food Law Student Network (FLSN) was founded in the spring of 2016 by law students who participated in the first Food Law Student Leadership Summit (held in October 2015) and wanted to create a forum for active engagement with food law and policy throughout the school year and beyond. Motivated by a shared desire to improve the food system, the FLSN raises a student voice in the national conversation about our food system. The FLSN serves as a hub to exchange ideas, knowledge, and practical skills, while building enduring connections among students and professionals to support the next generation of food law and policy advocates. The FLSN fulfills its mission by hosting regional and national events; providing guidance and resources for students to promote food policy at their schools; facilitating unique projects; and connecting students to mentorship and employment opportunities. More information can be found at www.foodlawstudentnetwork.org.

The FLSN Executive Committee formed following the 2015 Summit and now leads the student planning for the 2016 Summit.
