The Boalt Hall Animal Law Society is dedicated to educating the law school community about forms of institutionalized animal abuse and fostering awareness about means of combating this abuse through litigation. We hope to provide opportunities, education, assistance, and universal utility to UC Berkeley School of Law students working to promote positive legal protection of animal welfare. The Boalt Animal Law Society also desires to establish a curriculum where interested students can learn about animal rights and litigation strategies in a formal setting.

Won't do without the meat?
Consider a more humane source than the factory farm produced animal products:

Some labels don't have standards and have no monitoring or enforcement mechanisms. See the Humane Society of the United States website for information on what packaging labels, such as organic, free-range, and natural, mean for the animals.
