About the Role
Legal Advocacy Interns will work on litigation, research, and other legal projects aimed at protecting farmed animals. Each Intern will likely work with a variety of legal claims, such as claims based on state criminal anti-cruelty laws, administrative law, false advertising and unfair competition laws, tort liability, and corporate law. Interns will have opportunities to research new projects and to assist with ongoing projects in close collaboration with Animal Outlook’s attorneys.
Excellent research and writing skills are required, as is an interest in exploring novel ways to use the law to protect animals. Candidates with a background and interest in animal protection are preferred. Internships are available only to current law students.
About the Organisation
Animal Outlook is a national non-profit animal protection charity working to create a kinder world for all. As a complement to AO’s work on legal advocacy, investigations, education, outreach, and corporate campaigns, AO’s innovative Farm Transitions Program works to effectively transition farms from animal agriculture to plant-based agriculture. The Farm Transitions Program strives to address the systematic animal cruelty inherent to factory farming from the supply side by empowering farmers and providing farmers with tangible solutions and resources to facilitate an exit from animal agriculture.
