Celebrity Journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell to Speak at 2013 Animal Law ConferencePosted by Jennifer Molidor, ALDF's Staff Writer on August 14, 2013
The 2013 Animal Law Conference this fall just got even more exciting! Outspoken animal advocate, award-winning television journalist, and bestselling author Jane Velez-Mitchell will be the keynote speaker for the 2013 Animal Law Conference to be held at Stanford University this fall, October 25-27!
As the host of her own cable news show on Headline News, Jane’s rescue pup Rico joins her every Friday for Rico’s Rescues, where Jane helps connect rescued animals with forever homes. In fact, every day she features the “Pet of the Day” sent in by viewers across the country (you can submit yours to firstname.lastname@example.org). She is a tireless advocate, vegan, and animal hero, always lending her voice to important topical issues in the animal protection movement, and never afraid to speak her mind! Jane is also the bestselling author of Secrets Can Be Murder: What America’s Most Sensational Crimes Tell Us About Ourselves, and Addict Nation: an Intervention for America.
The issue of crime and justice will be covered thoroughly in the 2013 Animal Law Conference. As fans of prime time crime dramas know, jury trials can be the key to locking away dangerous criminals. So how can animal attorneys grapple with jury selection to help achieve justice for abused animals? And how can civil laws be used by citizens and animal advocates to fight animal cruelty? These are just a few of the hot topics attendees will discuss at the conference featuring the keynote talk by Jane Velez-Mitchell, who has also reported for the nationally syndicated show Celebrity Justice. ALDF is thrilled to have Jane on board in our fight to win justice for animals.
