FYI: UNC Animal Law Symposium

*This is not an official Meetup event, just information regarding a public event that TVSC members might be interested in attending.

From the Animal Law Symposium event page on Facebook:

The UNC Law Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) is hosting our second annual Animal Law Symposium on Saturday, March 23.

We will release a detailed agenda once all speakers are confirmed, but we can tell you that the symposium will include:

Keynote speaker will be journalist and author Will Potter presenting "Criminalizing Animal Activism: 'Ag Gag' Bills and the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act"

Panels and speakers will include:

Equine Law panel
Wake County's Trap-Neuter-Return feral cat ordinance panel
Calley Gerber, Gerber Animal Law Center
Caleb Scott, North Carolina Voters for Animal Welfare (NCVAW)

There will be a vegan lunch (catered by Vimala's Curryblossom cafe) and light breakfast.

There are a limited number of spaces again, so please register in advance! Tickets are $5 for general admission and free for students (but students must register online also). Registration can be completed online here:

We hope to have another successful symposium:

We look forward to seeing you, and be sure to register soon before space runs out!
