Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Convention 2020
Due to the uncertainty of what the COVID-19 landscape will be this fall and the likelihood that social distancing orders will still be in place, we’ve made the difficult decision to transition this year’s in-person Student Convention to a fully virtual event. More information coming soon.
Join the Animal Legal Defense Fund for the Virtual Student Convention 2020! This one-day event will provide an opportunity for law students to receive career advice from leaders in the animal law field. Participants will also have a chance to network with law students from schools across the country and beyond.
This event is open to current law students only.
Agenda and speaker bios coming soon!
