Celebrating One Year of the Global Law Alliance for Animals and the Environment
It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year! Last fall, we launched the Global Law Alliance for Animals and the Environment as a collaboration between the Center for Animal Law Studies and our #1 ranked Environmental Law Program at Lewis & Clark Law School. The Global Law Alliance works to protect wild animals and wild spaces across the globe through the development, implementation, and enforcement of international law. Law students (JD and LLM) actively participate in the work through two legal clinics.
In honor of the occasion, CALS Assistant Dean and Executive Director, Pamela Hart, sat down with the Global Law Alliance team, Clinical Professor and Director Erica Lyman and Senior Staff Attorney Nicholas Fromherz. Together, they look back at the past year and how the Global Law Alliance is making an impact for wild animals and the environment and educating the next generation to fight for both.
Our work through the Global Law Alliance would not be possible without our supporters who share our commitment to making the world a better place for animals. Please consider making a donation to support wild animals and wild spaces in honor of the Global Law Alliance’s one-year anniversary.
The Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS) was founded in 2008 with a mission to educate the next generation of animal law attorneys and advance animal protection through the law. With vision and bold risk-taking, CALS has since developed into a world-renowned animal law epicenter, with the most comprehensive animal law curriculum offered anywhere. CALS offers the world’s first and only advanced legal degree in Animal Law, now available both in person or online. In addition, CALS is the only program that offers an advanced legal degree in animal law and three specialty Animal Law Clinics.
