We are committed to training the next generation of animal law attorneys and advancing animal protection in the United States and around the world.

The following stories illustrate our work this year—and how donors are critical to these efforts.

Animal Law Litigation Clinic

The Animal Law Litigation Clinic (ALLC) is the only legal clinic in the world that focuses on farmed animal protection and training law students in critical litigation skills.

Thought Leadership in Animal Law

Our animal law faculty are involved not just in teaching and clinics, they also educate the world about the issues around animal protection through presentations, conferences, and articles.

First Online Animal Law LLM

The Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS) extended the reach of its widely acclaimed Animal Law LLM Degree this year. Law graduates and attorneys around the world now have the opportunity to learn from leading animal law experts without traveling to our campus.
