Who We Are

SALDF is the University of Michigan Law School’s student chapter of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, a national organization dedicated to animal protection through the legal system. SALDF aims to increase awareness of animal law issues in the UMLS community.

Though SALDF is not associated with, nor endorses, any animal rights/vegetarian groups, we are happy to share information regarding opportunities to get involved with animal-oriented groups of any type.
