Farmed Animals & Natural Disasters
Natural and weather related disasters are on the rise across the country, from droughts in California to hurricanes throughout the southern coast, and animals are often left with virtually no protections or plans to get them to safety. The Animal Legal Defense Fund is committed to mitigating the changing climate’s impact on animals through litigation, legislation, policy, and education. This webinar will walk law students through the animal-related issues at the center of such disasters and the limited laws that address the welfare of these animals. At the end of the webinar, students will be introduced to an opportunity to participate in the inaugural Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Scholars’ Writing Workshop on this issue.
For more information, reach out to Priscilla at email@example.com.
Registration for live attendance is only open to law students, but a recording will be made available on the website at a later time.
This webinar has been pre-recorded. Watch it now!
