Here’s an excerpt:

In April 2010, Northwestern Law Student Animal Legal Defense Fund hosted “Animal Law Week,” a weeklong series of events designed to educate students about the wide variety of issues facing animals in the legal system today. We hosted four lectures, one film showing, a service event, and a dinner at a local vegan restaurant. Our most well-attended event, entitled “If Slaughterhouses Had Glass Walls…,” focused on farm animal activism, undercover investigations, and media relations. Gene Baur from Farm Sanctuary and Nathan Runkle from Mercy for Animals delivered engaging presentations to about sixty students, many of whom learned about factory farming for the first time during this event.
