Student Clinical Placements

This winter, three of our students will be doing Animal Law clinical placements / writing projects for their January Term studies. One of the students will be working with the Humane Society of the United States in DC assessing the constitutional aspects of the Massachusetts Ballot Initiative, another will be working for the Animal Legal Defense Fund in LA on puppy mill and Foie Gras litigation, and the third will be traveling overseas to interface with the New Zealand Animal Law Association and write about that country’s national Animal Welfare Act which recently was amended to recognize “animals as sentient.”
