    Across the country, animal law clinics offer opportunities for law students to learn valuable lawyering skills while helping to improve justice. By participating in animal law clinics, students serve as hearing officers, court-appointed counsel, and advocates. Clinic students oversee administrative hearings, appear in court, and craft legislation. They hone skills like oral advocacy, case development, and negotiations. At the same time, the animals served by these clinics receive greater protection. This session will highlight four animal law clinics. Panelists will share their clinic’s design and goals and describe how the clinic helps develop lawyering skills and improve animal justice.
