Resources and Materials For Lawyers

The Public Justice Food Project uses strategically targeted litigation, coupled with basebuilding and storytelling, to address the structural and institutional inequities upon which our current food system is built and work toward a food system that is free from extraction and exploitation.

ATTORNEY NETWORK

We’re looking for the attorneys and law students to join the movement for a better food system.

In our work with movement allies, we’ve seen a major gap: there are not enough legal resources to support those most burdened by the negative impacts of industrial animal agriculture.

To fill this gap, we’re building the capacity of attorneys who want to work with impacted communities to make meaningful change through our Food Project Attorney Network. Law students and lawyers can join the Attorney Network for the opportunity to be paired with research projects or clients in need of legal assistance. To give you the tools needed to take on big ag, we’ll provide you with webinars and resources, monthly updates on Food Project cases, spotlights on Attorney Network members and community partners, and more.
