Animal Law Clinic
As the only animal law clinic in the country, the Center for Animal Law Studies’ Animal Law Clinic focuses on matters of national and international importance in addition to maintaining connections and working in the local community. Students in the Animal Law Clinic conduct research, represent clients, work on clinic projects, and work with attorneys outside the clinic to develop the field of animal law and encourage consideration of the interests of animals in legal decision making. Their work includes: research, transactional work, litigation, and strategic planning. Where possible, students also shadow local lawyers, work with lawyer practitioners around the country, observe legal proceedings, and conduct field work to better understand the problems facing animals.
