After four years as Director of the Animal Law & Policy Clinic at Harvard Law School, Katherine Meyer announces that she will be stepping down at the end of the academic year.
We could not be more grateful to Katherine Meyer for her four years of service as the inaugural Director of the Animal Law & Policy Clinic at Harvard Law School. Under her leadership and stewardship, the Clinic has accomplished significant impact while providing unparalleled training and mentoring to our students–preparing them to be future leaders of the animal protection field. Below is her gracious announcement about her decision to step down at the end of the academic year.
Accordingly, we now are launching our search for a new Clinic Director/Visiting Clinical Professor. Interested candidates can view the job description or apply via Harvard Law School’s academic positions website.
Here is Kathy’s note:
Sad to say, but this upcoming Spring Semester will be my last as Director of the Animal Law & Policy Clinic. I consider the opportunity to help launch this new Clinic in the Fall of 2019 as one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life.
The Clinic has been a roaring success, and this never would have happened without the tremendous vision and support from the Animal Law & Policy Program’s Faculty Director, Professor Kristen Stilt, and Executive Director, Chris Green, as well as the entire ALPP team.
But the greatest thanks go to the students who have consistently made this Clinic so effective and exciting–their boundless passion, enthusiasm, and hard work on behalf of animals in captivity and the wild has been truly inspirational, and I will carry that enormous positive energy with me for the rest of my life.
