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.

In 2012, CALS launched the world’s first—and still only—advanced animal law degree, the animal law LLM. The new online option gives participants access to many of the same courses taught in residence by CALS faculty, as well as by other prominent scholars and practitioners. Designed for those seeking to focus on animal law in practice, teaching, research, academia, policy, and more, the LLM can be completed in as few as four semesters, by taking approximately two courses per semester in an asynchronous format.

“Our alumni are already doing transformational work to improve the lives of animals around the world,” notes Pamela Hart, assistant dean and executive director of CALS. “Now, we are looking forward to seeing all that our new online animal law LLM alumni will accomplish to advance animal protection through the law.”
