FSU law grad fights for animal rights

Kevin Schneider, a recent graduate from Florida State's law school, is taking strides to support the animal community.

Schneider has worked to put FSU on the map for animal law, a field he is passionate about, paving the way for students to follow his lead and support a local nonprofit organization, Pets Ad Litem.

"I came to law school with the goal of doing animal law and environmental law and law in general," Schneider said. "I'm from Boston originally, so when I came down to Florida State, I got involved with the Animal Law Society."

During his second year of law school, as President of the Animal Law Society, Schneider helped to transform the organization into a Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) chapter as a way to more easily access grants and funding.
