"We are the only lawyers whose clients are all innocent," read a sign at the "Animal Law: Working with the Grassroots" conference.
Friday's event brought together about 30 activists and lawyers to develop ways to further the cause of animal rights through their own lives and practices. The Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) hosted the conference at the Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library.
Animal law deals with the treatment of animals, whether they are pets, farm animals or wild animals.
