Does anyone know which law schools in the U.S. have the best Animal Law programs?

Check out Lewis & Clark, Michigan State, and George Washington (unless it's George Mason I am thinking of).  I think that Penn just started an animal law journal.  Check out for a list of schools that have SALDF chapters as well as for those that have animal law classes.  Note:  From what I understand, animal law is an emerging field and there is always the opportunity to start a chapter of the SALDF at a school that doesn't have one or to push for animal law classes.

I am pretty sure that Georgetown has an active animal law student group. I don't know if there's one best school (maybe there is) but there are definitely schools that have one or more courses in animal law. And Lewis & Clark has (I believe) the country's only Animal Law Review.

On a related note, this gal has an animal law pratice in Chicago:

If you're planning to focus on Animal Law, it's very important to get some grounding in animal politics BEFORE you start law school.  I would definitely recommend "Animal Farm" by George Orwell.  Good luck!!!!!!!!!!
