Lots going on for law students at the Center for Animal Law Studies.
Every year in February, Harvard Law School hosts the Center’s three inter-law school competitions for students at accredited law schools in the United States. The Legislative Drafting & Lobbying Competition is open to all students, the Closing Argument competition is open to students who have completed at least one year, and the Moot Court competition is open to teams of two students who have completed at least one year.
This year’s competition will take place February 25-27. I have been to these competitions and I can assure you that they are intellectually stimulating, great networking opportunities, and really a lot of fun. I can think of no better way to hone your animal legal skills.
Although there are fees to participate ($225 for the single student competitors, $425 for the moot court teams), the Animal Legal Defense Fund offers grants to defray some of the travel costs.
Unfortunately, the Moot Court competition currently has a wait list, but the other two are still open.
