Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF)

SALDF is dedicated to providing a forum for education, advocacy, and scholarship aimed at protecting the lives and advancing the interests of animals through the legal system, and raising the profile of the field of animal law. SALDF is dedicated to the goals of educating the law school and surrounding community about forms of institutionalized animal abuse, and engaging in projects that combat that abuse. SALDF is equally dedicated to protecting the lives and advancing the interests of animals through the legal system. The activities SALDF include hosting speakers, and events on current issues in animal rights and animal welfare law, carrying out research projects for lawyers and organizations promoting animal welfare and animal rights litigation; networking with students at other schools, conducting educational events such as information tables and video screenings on pertinent issues.
