Student Animal Legal Defense Fund

The Brandeis SALDF is committed to safeguarding the rights of animals through the legal system and raising public awareness regarding Animal Law. Animal law is a combination of statutory and case law in which the nature - legal, social or biological - of nonhuman animals is an important factor. Animal law encompasses companion animals, wildlife, animals used in entertainment and animals raised for food and used in research. Animal law permeates and affects most traditional areas of the law - including tort, contract, criminal and constitutional law. The Brandeis SALDF will work with the community to protect the rights of our animal friends and companions.
