As our food law fellow, Tyler Lobdell’s work is focused solely on opportunities to improve the welfare of animals used for the production of food products, increase transparency in the food industry, and ensure that consumers have access to cruelty-free and plant-based alternatives.
Tyler graduated with honors from Lewis and Clark Law School with certificates in Animal Law and Environmental and Natural Resources. He earned the Pro Bono Honors Award all three years of law school. He also served on the Animal Law Review board as editor in chief.
Outside of the office, Tyler can be found hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, or bike riding as an opportunity to connect with the natural resources he fights to protect. Tyler works from the Animal Legal Defense Fund headquarters in Cotati, California where he shares his office with Moco, a 3-year-old mutt rescued from the euthanasia list.
