LL.M. Candidate Christina Rice Begins Harvard Fellowship

We are very pleased to announce that Christina Rice, LL.M. candidate in last year's class, has just begun her work as a Clinical Fellow in the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC), a division of the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School.

In this position, Christina will report to Emily Broad Leib, the Director of the FLPC and work with the clinic staff and students on a broad range of international, federal, state, and local policy projects that address the health, environmental, and economic impacts of our food system.

FLPC’s projects fall into four main categories: Food Policy Councils and Food Systems Planning; Food Access and Obesity Prevention; Food Waste; and, Sustainable Food Production.

Christina will serve as the lead attorney on one or more FLPC projects, manage client and partner relationships, work closely with law students enrolled in the clinic, assist in the development of classroom courses in conjunction with the clinic, represent the clinic to local and regional food policy groups and at national conferences, attend to clinic administrative needs, and help to set and implement the vision for the ongoing development and success of the Clinic.

Christina earned her J.D., with honors from Charlotte School of Law and her B.S., in Business Administration & Finance/Accounting from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She will complete her LL.M. degree by finishing her final article this Fall.

We should note that Christina is our second fellow at the Harvard Law FLPC.  She replaces LL.M. alumna Alli Condra, who is now in Oregon practicing in the Portland office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP.

Congratulations, Christina.
