Legal Intern: Clean Meat Regulation Abroad

GFI Policy Department Internship: 

Clean Meat Regulation Abroad


Primary GFI Mentor: Jessica Almy

Duration: 10-20 hours per week for 8-10 weeks

Start date: Rolling

Purpose: The purpose of this internship will be to support the work of GFI’s Policy Department to promote a healthy, humane, and sustainable food supply through regulatory and legislative reform. Specifically, we are looking for legal help (from interns or fellows) to conduct research into regulatory pathways for clean meat in countries outside of the United States.

Activities: The main activities of this internship are: 1) legal research into food regulation in a specific jurisdiction outside of the United States; and 2) analysis of how clean meat could be brought to market under the regulatory framework that currently exists in that jurisdiction.

Deliverables: The end result of this internship will be a legal research memorandum addressing the specific steps that producers should take to get approval to bring clean meat to market. Where the law is unclear or multiple regulatory pathways are available to clean meat producers, the memorandum should provide a compelling analysis of what the best pathway forward would be.

Learning Objectives: The primary learning objective is for the intern or fellow to develop expertise in researching how food is regulated in a country outside of the United States and analyzing a novel question of law.

Compensation: This position is unpaid.
