Welcome to the new school year!

Welcome to the new school year! We are so excited to bring animal law events to our virtual community this fall. The best way to get involved is to join our email list. You can also explore this website for more information about our organization and our events!

First, we’d like to introduce our new board for the 2020-2021 school year! Please feel free to reach out to any of us if you’d like to learn more about animal law careers, classes, or the HLS animal law community!

We are so excited to be serving on the ALS board this year!

Here’s a quick preview of our events for the semester. We are lining up an array of animal law experts to speak to our community throughout the semester, on issues ranging from farm animal welfare and litigation, to undercover investigations, to wildlife protection work. We are hosting virtual coffee chats with animal lawyers, so we can learn more about their careers in animal law and get advice for how to succeed in this field. We are hosting virtual vegan cooking classes, happy hours, and other social events, as well.

If you have any questions, or ideas, please reach out to animallaw@mail.law.harvard.edu, or individually to any of the board members. We hope to see you at one of our events soon!
