The Animal Law Guild will host its inaugural event in Los Angeles at Loyola Law School on September 27, 2014 - Trailblazers of Animal Law: Pathways to Practice and How To Create A Path Where One Doesn't Exist. The Conference will feature attorneys who are leaders in the field and have blazed the way for practicing and contributing to animal law in four different sectors: private practice, academia, government, and nonprofit. These trailblazers will discuss the key laws, regulations and case law pertaining to their sector, as well as the various legal strategies used to move the law forward for animals. Speakers will also share their personal stories about how they found a path – or created one if it didn't exist – to change the world for animals through legal advocacy. The Conference is co-presented by the Animal Law Guild and Public Interest Law Department at Loyola Law School.
