Animal Legal & Historical Center Summer Research Grants
Through the funding of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Animal Legal & Historical Center will be able to offer five $1,000 summer research grants. Under our grant program students are assigned topics and they draft a paper for posting on the website along with relevant primary legal materials. The commitment is to a minimum of 100 hours to be completed before August 15, 2014. We have full explanatory information on how to do the work from a computer located anywhere in the United States, or even foreign countries if you have Internet access.
This project has been under way for ten years. We now have considerable material available on the Website at: www.animallaw.info. We have created a basic set of materials for a number of animal issues, posting hundreds of cases and statutes in the process with about 5800 unique pages. Over 6,000 people visit the site on a weekday basis. Please take a moment to view the site if you have not done so before. On the right hand side under the heading Topic Area are examples of student written papers with the Summer Research Grants. Much remains to be done. Summertime and law students combine to create an opportunity to add even more materials to the site.
We have publication needs in a number of different areas and will work with a student to match your interests and our needs. We are open to topics if you have interests and expertise within a particular area. This is not something you can just squeeze in sometime; please do not apply if you do not have several weeks of open time this summer in which to do the work.
We will take applications from any student enrolled in an ABA US law school (or Canadian). Given the limited number of grants and the expected number of applications, those who have completed their second year of law school will be given a priority.
