Legal Services Food Hublast updated: August 2014

Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) manages the Legal Services Food Hub to help farmers, food entrepreneurs, and related organizations access free legal assistance for their transactional legal needs, such as land acquisition/transfer, estate issues, taxes, contracts, and corporate formation, among others.

The Legal Services Food Hub (LSFH) is a project of Conservation Law Foundation (CLF). CLF recruits attorneys to participate in the Legal Services Food Hub and manages the project, performing intake through a dedicated phone line and email address.

After assessing each participant’s case for eligibility, CLF reaches out to the Legal Services Food Hub attorney network and matches the participant with a skilled lawyer who will provide pro bono legal services. The Legal Services Food Hub network is composed of experienced attorneys that CLF has pre-screened. In addition, CLF is partnered with Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic to create a legal manual on issues specific to farmers and food entrepreneurs to help guide attorneys who join the network. CLF will conduct routine check-ins with attorneys and participants to ensure the representation is going well.
