Curriculum Vitae

Sophia Kruszewski


In 2018, Sophia Kruszewski joined CAFS to lead the Food and Agriculture Clinic. Sophia returned to Vermont Law School after spending the last five years immersed in federal food and agriculture policy with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC). At NSAC, Sophia's portfolio focused in particular on the Food Safety Modernization Act and its implementing regulations, as well as the Farm Bill, Clean Water Act, and other federal issues impacting farmers and the food system. Sophia has worked for the Center for Food Safety, clerked for the White House Council on Environmental Quality, and interned with the Honorable Judge Paul L. Friedman of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia. She holds a BS in Environmental Science from the University of Michigan and a JD from VLS, and is thrilled to be back on campus.
