Welcome Liz Hallinan!

Posted by Jennifer Molidor, ALDF's Staff Writer on September 27, 2013

liz-hallinanThe Animal Legal Defense Fund is delighted to welcome our newest Litigation Fellow to our team of animal heroes! As a Fellow, Liz will help litigate some of our most important animal cases.

Liz Hallinan received her J.D. from New York University, where she focused on environmental law and completed a clinic at the Natural Resources Defense Council. As a law student, Liz clerked for ALDF and was awarded an Advancement of Animal Law Scholarship. She also holds a master’s degree from Queens University, where she studied psychology and was recognized by the Canadian Psychological Association for her work in mind-brain behavior in child development. Before this, Liz received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Harvard University. Her senior thesis was awarded summa cum laude.

Prior to coming to ALDF, Liz worked on farmed-animal protection litigation for Compassion Over Killing, and environmental and animal law cases as a clerk for Meyer Glitzenstein and Crystal in Washington, D.C. Her special interests lie in factory-farm related issues, particularly because of the numbers of animals harmed and the clandestine nature of that industry. A published author of several psychological studies, Liz also enjoys cooking, hiking, volunteering, movies, and politics, and shares her household with a tabby cat named Piggy.
