Student Animal Legal Defense Fund

NIU Law is the 113th law school chapter working to promote the field of Animal Law under the auspices of the non-profit Animal Legal Defense Fund, whose mission is to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system. With the organization's support, students in the NIU Law chapter will join the ranks of hundreds of other student chapter members nationwide, taking on such projects as advocating for the addition of animal law courses to curriculums; hosting speakers, debates, panels and conferences; writing law review articles for journals dedicated to animal law; tabling on campus to raise awareness about animal issues; and volunteering to do legal research and writing for local law firms.
