Here’s an amazing opportunity for law students interested in animal law who have not yet solidified their summer plans. The Animal Legal Defense Fund is offering scholarships for eligible students to attend the Summer Intensive Animal Law program at Lewis and Clark Law School in Portland, OR!
This summer’s course offerings will include four different two-credit classes important for anyone interested in using the law to protect animals: International Wildlife Law (Professor David Favre); Animal Law Litigation (Professors Carter Dillard & Matthew Liebman); Animal Rights Law & Jurisprudence (Professor Steven Wise); and Law of Humane Science (Professor Paul Locke).
While the summer program is open not only to law students in good standing at any ABA-approved law school, but also to practitioners, as well as qualified graduate students and legal assistants, the scholarship program is specifically targeted at law students who are active in their school’s SALDF chapter. It will cover partial or full tuition for one course.
As you may know, Jasmin and I are headed out to Portland this summer so that I can teach at Lewis and Clark Law School in the fall semester. I’ll be teaching two courses: “Animals in Agriculture: Law and Policy,” and “Animal Law Fundamentals.” I can’t wait! There’s just so much going on at Lewis and Clark, and we’re so excited to hear about this opportunity for law students from around the country to share in these exciting goings-on and to gain credits toward their degrees at the same time. Hope to see you there!
