Trevor Shishkin

Online LLM Candidate ’22


Trevor is the recipient of the online Animal Law Advocates Scholarship and a graduate of Ryerson University’s Law Practice Program and the University of Saskatchewan College of Law, where he served as student editor of the Saskatchewan Law Review.

Knowing his passion was animal law, Trevor made the 3000km drive from his hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to Toronto, Ontario to complete his articles with Animal Justice, Canada’s only national animal law advocacy organization, where he worked to pass strong new animal protection laws and hold industries accountable for animal suffering. Trevor has since returned home to set up his own private practice and continues to be a voice for non-human animals and the people who seek to help them.

Trevor has twice been a panelist at the Canadian Animal Law Conference, where he speaks at the student day, highlighting career opportunities in animal law and his path to becoming an animal lawyer.

Trevor is forever grateful to his family for instilling a love of animals, and to his spouse for her support, courage, and determination to make the world a better place for animals.

“I’m ecstatic to be a part of the Lewis & Clark Animal Law Program community, having daydreamed about pursuing an LLM here since my earliest days of law school. I look forward to learning from the brilliant faculty and engaging with my diverse and impassioned colleagues as we all work towards creating a better future for nonhuman animals.”
