2011 National Animal Law Competitions

It’s that time of year again! The 2011 National Animal Law Competitions will be taking place right here on the HLS campus on February 26th and 27th. We are so excited about this event and we are sure that it is going to be a great success — but, we need your help. Specifically, we are looking for people to serve as timekeepers and timekeeper/staffers for the different rounds of the Competitions (more on this on the volunteer form). We greatly appreciate any time that you can take out of your busy schedules to help us ensure that this event goes smoothly.

Also, we have TWO amazing teams representing HLS this year in the Appellate Moot Court Competitions: Cary Mayberger & Jenny Shmuel (two of our board members and next year’s SALDF leadership!), and Myra Blake & Alex Krueger. We are thrilled to have both of these teams participating and wish them the best of luck!  Please show your support for these competitors by volunteering.

The 2011 National Animal Law Competitors Volunteer Form can be found here. Please contact us with any questions.
