Animal Law LLM Program

Introducing the World’s Only Advanced Legal Degree in Animal Law

In 2012, CALS launched the world’s first—and still only—advanced animal law legal degree, the Animal Law LLM. The Animal Law LLM is designed for U.S. and international law graduates and attorneys seeking to focus on animal law in practice, teaching, research, academia, or policy. CALS is proud to offer the most robust animal law curriculum in the world taught by distinguished faculty and practitioners, with our in-person LLM students afforded an opportunity to take part in one of our ground-breaking clinics, serve as editors on the Animal Law Review, and join the board of the Lewis & Clark Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Chapter. All students have the opportunity to attend the Animal Law Conference and Animal Law Review Symposium, and more.

Working closely with numerous animal law students each year, CALS is committed to educating the next generation of animal law attorneys. Supported long after graduation by CALS and our vast alumni network, our impressive Animal Law LLM graduates take what they have learned at Lewis & Clark Law School to effect positive change for animals in the U.S. and around the world.
