The Animal Legal Defense Fund Mentorship Program matches select legal professional mentors with law student mentees from across the country focused on animal law. Mentors are comprised of experts working in both legal and non-legal fields, including at animal protection organizations, in law schools, at law firms, and in government agencies. Mentees must be a student chapter member. Participants are asked to commit to at least one semester of mentorship, and will receive ongoing support by the Animal Legal Defense Fund Mentorship Program team.

Please check back here later this year for more information on how to sign-up to become a mentor or mentee.
