There are many ways for law students and new graduates to get involved! Apply for a clerkship or fellowship, submit an essay for our writing contest, or apply for a scholarship. Check out our Opportunities in Animal Law packet for even more suggestions on how to get active in this dynamic and cutting-edge area of the law.
