Gordon Merrick

Legal Fellow CLF Vermont

Gordon is one of the Legal Food Hub Fellows based out of Vermont. Gordon has just finished a JD at Vermont Law School, and is now finishing a Masters in Food and Agriculture Law and Policy. Prior to attending law school, Gordon wore many hats, including working in community and political organizing, farm and service industry jobs, and emergency medicine.  While piecing together part-time jobs to make a full-time work week, he grew to understand the amount of work individuals at all levels of our systems must do to get by, and this ultimately led him to pursue a law degree.  Gordon aims to leverage his legal education to help build a more just food system, from how food is produced to consumed.
