ALDF-LA Animal Law Symposium
UPDATE: The ALDF-LA Animal Law Symposium that was to be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014, has been postponed. We will reschedule this event for some time in 2015.
ALDF is working to challenge the negative impacts of CAFOs on animals, the environment, and public health, and this symposium, which will bring together leaders in each of those fields, is of great value to our efforts to inform legal professionals and the public about the core issues. We hope you will join us for the rescheduled event in 2015! Please stay tuned for details on the rescheduled event.
Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs): Impacts on Animals, Humans and the Environment
This event will mark 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.
