The 19th Annual Animal Law Conference is coming up on October 14-16 in Portland, OR, and Mariann and I are speaking at it! (Incidentally, I’ll also be in Portland later this month for the Vida Vegan Blogger’s Conference, and hope to see you there.) The Animal Law Conference is being presented by the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) and Lewis & Clark Law School, and is an event that those with an interest in animal law — both lawyers and (eh-hem) non-lawyers — look forward to every year.
Well, can it? CAN IT? I guess we’ll find out in October…
The talk that Mariann and I will be giving is called “Enough Already: DO Something for Animals!” You can read more about that workshop and the rest of the truly inspiring, invigorating workshops and panels on their impressive program page.
For those of you who are law students, ALDF is offering travel grants to active Student ALDF chapters to help members attend (email Nicole Pallotta at npallotta[at]aldf [dot]org for more info on the grants). Since you law students are probably still wondering how on earth you’re going to pay off your student loans, that seems like an A-okay opportunity to me. For those of you who are not SALDF members but are still interested in attending this truly one-of-a-kind conference, early-bird rates are available through September 9, and remember to act fast, because it sells out every year.
