Animal Law Curriculum
Lewis & Clark’s Animal Law Program is housed within its Environmental & Natural Resources Law Program, providing students with a veritable smorgasbord of curriculum choices. Frequently named the best environmental law program in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, it was also the first academic program in the nation to receive the American Bar Association Award for Distinguished Achievement in Environmental Law.
Remaining true to its pioneer spirit, Lewis & Clark was the first law school in the country to launch an environmental law program (2010 marked its 40th anniversary!) AND the first to launch an animal law program (2012 marks its 20th anniversary!).
A leader in animal law since the 1990s, the Center for Animal Law Studies offers the only comprehensive animal law program in the nation. At Lewis & Clark Law School, the animal law community is strong, vibrant and ever-growing. It is a truly special institution, and there is no better place to study animal law.
