Animal Law Conferences

Animal Law is the subject of both annual & biennial national and international conferences, as well as a multitude of issue-specific and regional symposia & events.

The Animal Law Conference––Annually each October in Portland, OR
“In 1993, a small contingent of Lewis & Clark SALDF students interested in animal welfare hosted a one-day symposium addressing wildlife issues. From that humble beginning, The Animal Law Conference at Lewis & Clark started its tradition of hosting an annual academic conference to address the subject of animal law.”

The Canadian Animal Law Conference––October 4-6, 2019, Halifax, Nova Scotia
Canada’s first-ever Student Animal Law Conference also will take place in the lead up to the Canadian Animal Law Conference at Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University, on Friday, October 4, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Taking Action for Animals––Biennially during even-year Summers in Washington D.C.
Hosted by the Humane Society of the United States, TAFA brings together a diverse array of advocates for a full weekend of presentations, workshops and training sessions. Both newcomers and seasoned advocates alike can find something to learn, and the event usually includes a “Lobby Day” of hands-on engagement on Capitol Hill.
