The Animal Law Clinic, and the Center for Animal Law Studies, are pleased to announce Rebecca Jenkins as the first Aquatic Animal Law Initiative Fellow. Over the next two years, Rebecca will work in the Animal Law Clinic focusing on the legal protection and regulation of aquatic animals.

Rebecca joins us after graduating from Trinity College Dublin School of Law and working for the Green Party of Ireland. She received the Animal Law Ambassador Award and graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School’s Animal Law LL.M. program in May 2016. Rebecca has been published in Lewis & Clark’s Animal Law Journal and has presented at the Oxford Center for Animal Ethics. Rebecca’s research interests include: food law and policy, human rights law, intersectional approaches to animal law, and aquatic animal law. Rebecca’s upcoming publication is a chapter on food justice and worker welfare in Animals, Food and Tourism.

Rebecca is happy to return to the Lewis & Clark Law School community and looks forward to the opportunity to engage in, and promote dialogue related to, this emerging field of law.
