The University of California’s Global Food Initiative challenges campuses to develop solutions for one of the most pressing issues of our time: the “quest to establish global food security and address related challenges of nutrition and sustainability.” This report, written as part of the Global Food Initiative, focuses specifically on the need for law schools to more visibly and holistically address this pressing societal challenge, and examines how law schools in the University of California system and across the country are addressing, and can further address, social, economic, and environmental injustice in our current food system.
