Saturday, September 27, 2014
10:00 a.m. – 6:15 p.m. with networking reception to follow
Loyola Law School, 919 Albany Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015
This event marks the first animal law symposium for ALDF-LA, the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Los Angeles regional attorney network. Law professionals and students can expect an informative daylong symposium focused on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) – commonly referred to as “factory farms” – and their impacts on animals, humans, and the environment. Top experts will also discuss the various legal strategies that have been used to challenge and change the harmful impacts of CAFOs. Finally, we will explore the future of the CAFO system and its sustainability with a special keynote speaker. Attorneys will be eligible to receive CLE credits for attending, but we also welcome law students and other legal professionals.
This symposium is co-presented by ALDF-LA and the Public Interest Law Department at Loyola Law School.
