Student Animal Legal Defense Fund

Who we are

As law students, our mission is to learn how to advance the interests of animals through the legal system so that we may further this cause in our future practice of law.

What we do

We have been active in expanding our understanding of issues in animal law and supporting causes that further the rights of animals. Recent issues that have been covered by the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund include estate planning as it relates to pet ownership, prosecution of animal abusers and humane treatment of animals in medical research.
