Section Focus

Three adults stand together in a row, facing the viewer with smiles. Behind and above them is a projected slide entitled 'Lawyers to the Rescue 6.'The Animal Law Section sponsors monthly meetings to raise awareness and educate the legal community regarding legal issues affecting animals and their welfare through CLE presentations, networking opportunities, publication and a distribution of materials. The ALS ordinarily holds its monthly meetings during lunch. Inquiries regarding membership and meeting times should be directed to the ALS Secretary.
