Today Keep Food Legal and Keep Food Legal Foundation are excited to announce the official launch of our new Pro Bono Program. With the launch of this program, we are currently seeking law firms, licensed attorneys, and student attorneys (law students) to take part in a variety of groundbreaking legal actions in support of food freedom.
"With the launch of our pro bono legal program, Keep Food Legal and Keep Food Legal Foundation are taking the next step in our evolution," says Keep Food Legal and Keep Food Legal Foundation executive director Baylen Linnekin. "By adding the opportunity to litigate for food freedom to our current focus areas of research, education, outreach, publishing, and--in the case of Keep Food Legal, advocacy--we expect to be able to more effect more direct and lasting changes."
Keep Food Legal and/or Keep Food Legal Foundation seek to partner with law firms and attorneys licensed to practice in at least one U.S. state on a variety of food-related legal matters. Specifically, we are currently seeking to partner with firms and licensed attorneys that wish to provide pro bono legal services--especially writing and filing amicus briefs--and with experienced attorneys interested in litigating in support of food freedom.
Keep Food Legal Foundation is also seeking one or more law students to serve as a student attorney on a per-semester basis. Students currently pursuing a J.D. or LL.M. at an accredited U.S. law school are welcome to apply. This position is unpaid, though students may be eligible to earn law-school credit.
