Alli Condra Accepts Fellowship at Harvard

We are delighted to report that recent LL.M. graduate, Allison Condra has accepted a fellowship position with Harvard Law School's Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation.  She will work with the Center’s Food Law and Policy Clinic on a broad range of federal, state, and local policy projects "to increase access to nutritious food for poor and low-income individuals and families, reduce diet-related diseases, and maximize small farmers’ access to food markets."  She will report to clinic director, Emily Broad Lieb, a recognized new leader in the food policy arena.

The Food Law & Policy Clinic at Harvard has been involved in a wide range of work, including outreach and training for state and national government officials and community groups. They recently published the Good Laws, Good Food Toolkit for Putting Local Food Policy to Work for Our Communities.

Alli received her B.A. from California Lutheran University (Interdisciplinary Studies in Pre-Naturopathic Medicine) and her J.D. with High Honors from Drake University Law School, earning a Certificate in Food & Agricultural Law.  Alli was with us in the LL.M. Program during the 2011-2012 academic year as the recipient of the Marler Clark Graduate Assistantship. This assistantship allowed her to write articles for the acclaimed online newspaper, Food Safety News sponsored by Marler Clark. Alli completed her final article, Food Sovereignty in the United States: Supporting Local and Regional Food Systems, this summer and received her LL.M. degree in August.

Congratulations, Alli - we know you will accomplish great things!
