    The BLS Student Animal Legal Defense Fund is proud to host a lecture on animal rights jurisprudence with the legendary Steven M. Wise. A vegetarian dinner and wine will be served. Practicing animal law for the last 30 years, Professor Wise has worked on some of the most ambitious and influential cases in his field, and has served as a pioneer of the legal and scientific arguments for animal rights. He is the former president of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and current president of the Center for the Expansion of Fundamental Rights, where, through its Nonhuman Rights Project, he seeks to establish standing rights for nonhuman primates in civil court. He has taught at a number of law schools, including Harvard, Vermont, Lewis & Clark, and John Marshall, and has written four influential books, including “Rattling the Cage – Toward Legal Rights for Animals” (2000).
