Animal Legal Defense Fund, ASU Student Chapter

The Animal Legal Defense Fund - ASU Law Student Chapter is associated with the non-profit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), whose mission is to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system. ALDF files lawsuits throughout the country on animal law matters as diverse as cruelty to companion animals, ag-gag laws, breed-specific legislation, and more. ALDF also assists local prosecutors free of charge in animal cruelty cases and lobbies for stronger protection of animals in federal and state legislation. Student chapters like ours host events and work on projects to raise awareness about animal law in the school and local community.

Students, faculty, and community members can contact us at for any questions.
