Vote for Partnership for Animal Law Services

Four May graduates of the University of Louisville, Brandeis School of Law have created Partnership for Animal Law Services (PALS). PALS plans to provide legal services and education to people in rural and urban areas of Kentucky focusing on the intervention and prevention of animal abuse and neglect. These services will empower clients and the public to build a compassionate community for all. PALS will take a grassroots approach by providing three main programs: general legal services, prosecution support, and education.

PALS is currently a candidate for a $50,000 Pepsi Refresh project grant. Pepsi is giving away over 1 million dollars each month to individuals striving to bring about social change. The public votes for the ideas they want to see happen, and those ideas get funded. Please help PALS by voting for us every day in June! You can vote at www.refresheverything.com/pals. If you want more information about PALS you can visit our website at www.animallawservices.org, or search for us on Facebook: Partnership for Animal Law Services. Thanks for your votes!!

Kudos to the Animal Law Moot Court Team

The Animal Law Moot Court Team, comprising Lauren Bean and Rexena Napier, made it to the semifinal round National Animal Law Moot Court Competition held at Harvard Law School February 5-7.  Their only loss was to the team that won the entire competition.  As this is only the second year UofL has taken part in this competition, this performance was especially noteworthy.
