ALDF Heads to Summer School

Posted by Carter Dillard, ALDF's Director of Litigation on May 2, 2012

This summer Matthew Liebman and I are excited to be teaching an intensive course at Lewis & Clark Law School entitled Animal Law Litigation. It will literally cover the nuts and bolts of building strategic impact litigation. We will focus on both the theoretical and practical aspects of civil litigation in animal law cases, at both the federal and state level, and relate that to various cases ALDF is now litigating. We are especially excited to be doing it at Lewis & Clark, a truly progressive school that is forward-thinking enough to realize that the regulation of humans’ treatment of the nonhuman deserves special focus. While Matthew and I have been doing the work for a while, we expect to learn from the students, and hopefully we will all leave the course as better prepared animal law litigators. Hope to see you there!

The Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark, in collaboration with the Animal Legal Defense Fund, welcomes and encourages all perspectives. Its Summer Intensive Animal Law Program is open to visiting students in good standing at any ABA-approved law school. Please note, visiting students must supply a letter of good standing from their home institution prior to the first day of class. Courses are also open to attorneys and qualifying individuals with a bachelor’s degree and may be taken as audit at a discounted rate. Legal assistants without a bachelor’s degree are also eligible if they provide a letter from their employer confirming they work as legal assistants. For more information, please visit the Summer Intensive Animal Law Program webpages. Questions? Please contact CALS Assistant Director Laura Handzel at or 503.768.6960.
