Center for Food Safety (CFS)
George Kimbrell is the Legal Director of the Center for Food Safety (CFS), a nationwide nonprofit whose mission is to empower people, support farmers, and protect the earth from the harmful impacts of industrial agriculture. His legal, legislative, and policy work runs the gamut of many CFS program areas, including pesticides, pollinators, organic standards, genetically engineered plants and animals, factory farm pollution, food labeling, foodborne illness, and aquaculture. Along with his Director duties, George is counsel in many CFS cases. Among other landmark cases, George was counsel in the first U.S. Supreme Court case on the regulation of genetically engineered crops. He received his law degree magna cum laude from Lewis and Clark Law School, where since 2010 he has also taught as an adjunct professor. Before joining CFS, George completed a clerkship with the Honorable Ronald M. Gould, United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
