9th Annual National Animal Law Competitions
February 24-26th, 2012
Presented by the Center for Animal Law Studies
Hosted by UCLA School of Law
The 2012 National Animal Law Competitions were a huge success. This year, we were thrilled to team up with the UCLA School of Law as they played host to the 9th annual event. Read UCLA Animal Law Program’s announcement.
The National Animal Law Competitions (NALC) are an inter-law school competition presented by the Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark, in collaboration with the Animal Legal Defense Fund. NALC provides law students from across the United States an opportunity to develop knowledge in the field of animal law while honing their written and oral advocacy skills. The event is comprised of three separate competitions:
- Legislative Drafting & Lobbying Competition;
- Closing Argument Competition; and
- Appellate Moot Court Competition.
Once again this year, over seventy law student competitors represented over twenty of our nation’s best law schools at NALC. We enjoyed the company of the student competitors, their coaches, and the many guest judges and volunteers that made this event possible. We would especially like to thank UCLA School of Law.
