The California Animal Law Symposium is a student-run conference on current and trending animal legal issues within the state of California. Law student animal law chapters from around the state participate by hosting panels on various topics including civil, criminal, and legislative issues. The event is a great opportunity for law students interested in networking with animal lawyers and provides MCLE credit to practicing attorneys. In addition, the event also attracts attendees from many different fields of animal welfare including rescue and shelter, nonprofit organizations, and law enforcement.
The first California Annual Animal Law Symposium was held at Golden Gate University School of Law on March 3, 2013.
