Fall General Meeting

Date: Sep 15, 2015
Venue : Room 545

For those of you who missed the Fall General Meeting…

Each year, we send upperclassmen to the Animal Law Conference at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. It’s a valuable educational and networking opportunity for those who are interested in pursuing animal law. During the fall semester, some of our fundraisers are to subsidize the cost of travel and attendance for those students who go to the Conference. It will be made clear which fundraisers are hosted to support those students’ attendance.

Upcoming Events

  • National Speak Out for Farmed Animals Week

    • 10/5 – Bake Sale & Leafleting | 9-5 | 3rd Floor

    • 10/7 – HEART Training | 6-8 pm | Room C20 | Vegan food served!

      • This session will cover information about the HEART (Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers)  program and will teach law students alternative ways to work towards greater animal protections. The lesson will focus on farmed animals, to tie in with National Speak Out for Farmed Animals Week. This is really an awesome opportunity to learn how to be a better advocate for animals and I encourage everyone to sign up and take advantage of this training!
