FOOD AND THE LAW CLUB

On 8th February 2022, a seminar was organized at the school of law to launch the Food and Law Club. It took place in the lower auditorium and was attended by 60 participants, who included students, lecturers and legal practitioners. The club was launched to facilitate early engagement of students into understanding adequate food as a fundamental human right and an underlying factor to the enjoyment of other rights and to train young lawyers in public interest litigation to protect the rights of the vulnerable in society. Among the facilitators were members from the AWG and lecturers from the school. Guidelines for the club were developed and adopted by the interim leadership committee. That committee is developing a final constitution that will bind all members of the club when implementing any activity of the club. On its completion, a general meeting will be held to adopt the leadership and elect the leaders.
