Factory Farming: Impacts on Animals, Humans, and the Environment

A symposium presented by the Animal Legal Defense Fund and the USC Gould School of Law Student Animal Legal Defense Fund

Save the Date: Saturday, March 28, 2015


You are cordially invited to attend the first symposium of the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Los Angeles regional attorney network. Law professionals and students can expect an informative daylong CLE focused on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs)—aka “factory farms”—and their impacts on animals, humans, and the environment.

Top experts will discuss the legal and grassroots strategies being used to challenge and change the harmful impacts of CAFOs. Speakers include: Carter Dillard, director of litigation at ALDF; Kathy Hessler, clinical director at Lewis & Clark Law School; Paige Tomaselli, senior staff attorney at Center for Food Safety; Justin Marceau, associate professor at University of Denver Sturm College of Law; and Leslie Brueckner, senior attorney at Public Justice, among others.

Will Potter, journalist and author of Green is the New Red, and Ethan Brown, CEO of Beyond Meat, will deliver keynote addresses.

Attorneys will be eligible to receive CLE credits for attending. We also welcome law students and other legal professionals.
