You are cordially invited to attend the first symposium of the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Los Angeles regional attorney network.

Speakers include: Carter Dillard, director of litigation at ALDF; Kathy Hessler, clinical director at Lewis & Clark Law School; Paige Tomaselli, senior staff attorney at Center for Food Safety; and Leslie Brueckner, senior attorney at Public Justice, among others.
