If you read this blog, you have already heard lots about the Animal Legal Defense Fund (we’ve interviewed Carter Dillard, ALDF superstar, and have talked all about the scholarships they offer to animal law students). Well, ALDF has yet another amazing opportunity for a new lawyer interested in pursuing litigation, with a focus on animal law.
The ALDF Animal Law Institute Litigation Fellowship, based in Northern California beginning this June, is offering a chance for some lucky lawyer “to develop state and federal strategic impact litigation and legislation to better the lives and legal status of animals.” To be a contender, you must have received your JD within the past 3 years.
Recently, there has been a huge influx of interest in the field of animal law — without a doubt, one of the reasons for that is the work of the folks at ALDF, as well those at the Center for Animal Law Studies (we also recently interviewed Pam Frasch of the Center, who shed light on this phenomenon) — not to mention Bob Barker, who has donated millions of dollars to fund animal law programs throughout the United States. This amazing job opportunity presents the chance of a lifetime to be on the inside of this amazing growth, and to do cutting edge work advancing the interests of animals.
