We’re excited to debut our new logo for the Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Chapters!

This streamlined, modern re-imagining of our classic shield-of-protection logo reflects the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s incredible growth over the past four decades. From the beginning, we’ve always been about change.

When the Animal Legal Defense Fund was founded, “animal law” didn’t even exist. Today, we’re at the forefront of this rapidly growing field of law, reaching new generations of attorneys, judges, and law students dedicating their careers to fighting for animals’ legal rights.

We are also switching to “Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Chapters” from “Student Animal Legal Defense Fund.” For your chapter’s name, you may incorporate your school name, i.e., Lewis & Clark Law School Animal Legal Defense Fund, or Animal Legal Defense Fund – Lewis & Clark Chapter.

Download one of these two versions below (horizontal or vertical). These are editable so you can add your school’s name!

How We Work


  • There are no “bad dogs”

    As the Animal Legal Defense Fund combats dogfighting by working with state officials to create stronger laws and more effective penalties for those who engage in this crime, we’re also hard at work to ensure the best possible outcomes for dogfighting victims.
