Experiential Learning

The Center for Animal Law Studies offers multiple animal law clinics and experiential learning opportunities for students, with specific course offerings varying by semester. 

Animal Law Clinic

The original Animal Law Clinic (established in the fall of 2008) serves as a comprehensive training ground for students interested in the full range of policy and related work to benefit the field of animal law and encourage consideration of the interests of animals in legal decision-making through the direct representation of clients. The ALC is not being offered during the 2022-23 academic year.

Farmed Animal Protection Project 

The Farmed Animal Protection Project (established in the fall of 2022) advances the knowledge and skills regarding farmed animal law for our increasingly diverse student body (LLM, MSL and JD). Students create individual farmed animal protection projects.

Pangolins are the world's most trafficked mammal. International Wildlife Law Clinics

Through the Global Law Alliance for Animals and the Environment, we offer two international wildlife law clinics—one designed for JD students and one designed for our Animal Law LLM students. These clinics provide an opportunity for students to work on projects that advance the protection of wildlife across the globe.
