Law Professional & Law Student Resources

The Animal Legal Defense Fund is the preeminent organization supporting law students, attorneys, prosecutors, law enforcement, and legislators. If you are putting your legal expertise to work on behalf of animals—or would like to learn how—ALDF has everything you need to get started.

Join the Animal Legal Defense Fund for the first Animal Law Boot Camp, Saturday, November 11, 2017.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund has numerous resources for law professionals interested in the field of animal law.

ALDF's resources for law students and Student Animal Legal Defense Fund chapters include ways to get involved in animal law, instructions for starting an animal law course or SALDF chapter at your school, and more!

The Animal Legal Defense Fund would never be able to use the law to advance the interests of animals without the support of legal professionals nationwide. In this series of spotlights, ALDF’s Animal Law Program salutes the attorneys winning the case against cruelty.
