Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF)
Student Animal Legal Defense Fund is an organization dedicated to promoting the awareness of animal rights and educating the law school community about the legal protection of animal welfare. Our goal is to assist animal rights organizations such as the ASPCA and local animal shelters. SALDF strives to provide opportunities for students to learn more about and explore the field of animal law through panel discussions on campus and community volunteering.
For the past eight years, the Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark Law School, in collaboration with the Animal Legal Defense Fund, has presented the National Animal Law Competition, an inter-law school competition. This year, the competition will be taking place at Harvard Law School. The UConn Law chapter of SALDF would like to send a team to compete for the first time. You can help us get there!
Our goal is to raise the registration fee to send interested students to compete in at least one (or all) of the three competitions offered: Legislative Drafting & Lobbying Competition, Closing Argument Competition ($225 per individual competitor), and Appellate Moot Court Competition ($425 per team). If we do not meet this goal, in the alternative, all funds raised will be used towards bringing speakers (like the CEO of the Humane Society of the United States who came to speak last year) to campus and screening films that are relevant to the subject of animal rights. We thank you for taking the time to stop by our page.
