External Projects Chair
Conor is a 2L at Lewis & Clark Law and she came to L & C specifically to study animal law. She is from New Orleans, Louisiana where she graduated with a B.A. in philosophy.
Conor grew up in a family that rescued and fostered dogs, and was a regular volunteer at her local shelter. In college she focused her studies on moral philosophy, often asking questions concerning the moral status of companion animals and wildlife. Conor recently worked with the Louisiana SPCA and the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s office investigating and prosecuting animal cruelty and neglect cases. Conor’s legal interests include improving the status of animals within the criminal justice system. Conor is the proud mother of two rescued beagles, Tripp and Penny, and it was through her love of the breed that she became such a strong advocate against animal testing.
In her spare time, Conor and her pups can be found hiking and camping throughout the northwest, cycling around the city (yes, Tripp & Penny have a nice trailer attached to Conor’s bike so they can tag along), or finally trying a vegan spot she has yet to frequent. Conor is very excited to take on the role of External Projects Chair for L&C SALDF! She has many great ideas for volunteer opportunities and retreats to get animal lovers connected and involved in our community!
