- Food-Law Fellowship, DC, USA

Food-Law Fellowship
The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI)

Location:
USA – Washington, DC

Description – 

The Fellow works with the CSPI Litigation Director and other CSPI attorneys to litigate cases, including false and misleading labeling/advertising class actions in federal and state trial courts.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is a non-profit advocacy organization that focuses on improving nutrition and health in the United States.  Among its myriad accomplishments, CSPI led successful efforts to win a ban of trans fat in processed foods; an “added sugars” line for Nutrition Facts labels; more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in all public schools; and a halt to advertising of junk food to children by most major manufacturers.  CSPI also publishes Nutrition Action Healthletter, a leading nutrition newsletter.  In recognition of its contributions to public health, CSPI and its leadership have received myriad awards from the FDA, CDC, AHA, and others. 


Among CSPI’s priority programs is its Litigation Project.  That project pioneered the field of food law and ever since 2004 has used litigation and negotiation to tackle some of the toughest issues in food and nutrition, including better food labeling and more honest marketing.  To learn more about CSPI’s litigation work, visit http://cspinet.org/protecting-our-health/courts.  Current litigations include a pioneering litigation against Coca-Cola and the American Beverage Association for violation of DC’s consumer protection statute in branding sugar drinks as, effectively, healthy, and class actions against General Mills, CVS, and Kelloggs for false and misleading advertising (deceptive health halos).
