Student Animal Legal Defense Fund

Student Animal Legal Defense Fund is dedicated to promoting the awareness of animal rights and educating the law school community about the legal protection of animal welfare. Our goal is to assist animal rights organizations such as the ASPCA and local animal shelters. SALDF strives to provide opportunities for students to learn more about and explore the field of animal law through panel discussions on campus and community volunteering.
