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.
