Spring 2021 Climate, Animals, Food & Environment Law & Policy Lab
Pre-Registration Deadline: October 28
The Climate, Animals, Food & Environment (CAFE) Law & Policy Lab is now accepting registration and cross-registration applications from Yale University students interested in enrolling in this new 3 unit experiential learning course.  Students in the CAFE Lab will gain firsthand experience working with faculty, outside experts, and non-governmental organizations to develop innovative law and policy initiatives to bring systemic change to the global food industry, which is one of the top contributors to climate change, animal suffering, human exploitation, and environmental degradation worldwide.  The Lab’s mission is to devise and propagate novel legal and policy strategies to compel industrial food producers to pay the currently uncounted, externalized costs of industrial agriculture for animals, workers, communities, and the environment.  The Lab will provide a creative space for students to develop and launch new ideas and prototypes that will be shared in an open-source format with the purpose of fostering adoption by a wide-ranging cross-section of non-profit, government, and corporate leaders.
In order the ensure consideration, students should submit a resume and a brief statement of interest to douglas.kysar@yale.edu by the close of business October 28. (YLS students should follow the process and bidding deadlines provided on the Law School Course Catalog.) The Spring CAFE Lab course will meet on Mondays from 4:10-6 p.m. and follow the YLS academic schedule. More information on the CAFE Lab is available on the Yale Law, Ethics, and Animals program page and the Yale Law School course catalog.
