GWU Inaugural Spring Symposium: Animals and the Anthropocene: A Legal Scholarship Symposium

Washington, DC, United States

Please join the Animal Legal Education Initiative at The George Washington University Law School as they host its Inaugural Spring Symposium on March 24, 2023, titled: Animals and the Anthropocene: A Legal Scholarship Symposium. The Symposium will be co-hosted by the GW Law Environmental and Energy Law Program and the GW Law chapter of the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF). Event registration coming soon.

Anthropocene is the name for our current geological age in which human activity is the dominant factor impacting climate, the environment, and non-human animals. The goal of this Symposium is to provide space to consider scholarship that addresses what this means for nonhuman animals. 

This Symposium is free and open to everyone interested in attending. It will take place primarily in person at GW Law School in Washington DC, with limited options to attend or present remotely. The in-person Symposium will feature all-vegan catering, including breakfast, lunch, and light refreshments at an evening reception.
