Two Yale Law School students, Emma Findlen LeBlanc ’24 and Thomas Poston ’24, are the 2022-2023 Emerging Scholars Fellows with the Brooks Institute for Animal Rights Law and Policy. The Brooks Institute’s Emerging Scholars fellowship program supports students who intend to become law professors and make animal law a significant component of their teaching and research. The program provides fellows with mentorship and support in their second or third years of law school. 

Founded in 2019, the Law, Ethics & Animals Program at Yale Law School is a multidisciplinary program dedicated to developing strategies to address industrialized animal cruelty and its impacts on the living world, and to drawing attention to the deep questions of conscience and law raised by humanity’s treatment of animals.
