“For anyone interested in Animal Law, Lewis and Clark is truly the place to be. I was able to take highly specialized classes from experienced and knowledgeable professors. I gained invaluable experience participating in the Animal Law Clinic, working for CALS as a graduate assistant, and creating an interdisciplinary human-animal studies collaboration between Lewis and Clark’s three campuses. Pursuing my LLM allowed me to immerse myself completely in Animal Law, and I was surrounded by bright, passionate students and faculty.”
