Opportunities in Animal Law

Large mammals in captivity, intensive confinement of farmed animals, pet custody, the link between domestic violence and animal cruelty, and food safety – the issues that fill today’s headlines reflect the rapid growth of the field of animal law.

At the Animal Legal Defense Fund, we want to help students find a meaningful way to merge their profession with their passion for animals. This “Opportunities in Animal Law” booklet is intended as a resource for students and graduates interested in this dynamic and cutting-edge area of the law. In this booklet, you will find information about clerkships, scholarships, job and pro bono opportunities, law journals, research tools, Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) chapters and much more.
