About

Like animals? Hate cruelty? You’ll love HLS Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (HLS SALDF).

HLS SALDF hosts fun, edgy, crowded talks, with the best food on campus. We also work to protect animals through the legal system and in other ways. We collaborate with HLS’s exciting new Animal Law & Policy Program. To see all the cool stuff we have done, view our past events.

Students founded HLS SALDF in 1995 as a chapter of the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF). ALDF uses law to advance animals’ interests. In 2015, we won ALDF’s Chapter of the Year award.

HLS SALDF has four major goals:

  1. support HLS students interested in animal protection law;
  2. engage the HLS community in issues facing animals, and in how law can help or hurt;
  3. serve delicious vegan meals (We welcome meat-eaters and vegetarians alike—we promise you’ll all love our food!); and
  4. work to protect animals, especially via the legal system

Read the upcoming events page to see what we have planned.
