Are you interested in strategic litigation? Have you ever wondered what it might be like to found and lead a new impact-litigation nonprofit? Would you like to learn more about using your law degree to advocate for interests that often go unheard in the political process?

Please join us for lunch, a short presentation, and Q&A with Alene Anello, President and Founder of Legal Impact for Chickens (LIC). LIC is an impact-litigation nonprofit that designs strategic lawsuits that benefit chickens and other farmed animals. LIC develops and refines creative ways of civilly enforcing existing cruelty laws in factory farms. LIC also litigates against companies that break animal-welfare commitments.

Alene graduated from Harvard Law School, clerked for a federal judge, and then started litigating for animals. She has worked at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and The Good Food Institute. You can read more about Alene’s story and the journey that led her to found LIC on the organization’s website.
