Educating the Next Generation of Animal Law Attorneys
The Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS), in collaboration with the Animal Legal Defense Fund, is home to the Animal Law Program and animal law projects and activities of Lewis & Clark Law School. We work to ensure the interests of animals are considered in the legal system and provide the best education to the next generation of animal law attorneys.
Lewis & Clark Law School has been a leader and pioneer in the field of animal law education since 1992. In 2008 a historic collaborative effort between the Law School and the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) created the Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS). We educate and support law students and legal professionals interested in animal law through our LL.M. program, classes, conferences, scholarship, and clinical opportunities
