How to Start a Student Chapter at Your Law School
Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Chapters
Does your law school currently have an active Animal Legal Defense Fund student chapter? If not, start one!
The following materials will help you form an Animal Legal Defense Fund student chapter at your university. Chapters are student organizations that are affiliated with the Animal Legal Defense Fund and share its mission to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system. Student chapters are an instrumental part of a growing national movement towards recognizing the important body of law known as animal law. An Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Chapter can be a powerful forum on campus for education and scholarship aimed at understanding the impact the law has on animals. Student chapters are in a unique position to advocate for changing laws to better protect animals. The specifics of forming a chapter will vary depending on your school’s requirements for student organizations. The below materials will help you navigate this process and understand Animal Legal Defense Fund’s requirements. Please contact the Student Programs Attorney with any questions.
