UCLA Law School Presentation

Please join us at UCLA Law School on Monday, March 20th, at 7 p.m. for a presentation by Steve Wise. Mr. Wise has twenty years of experience as a teacher, scholar, and practitioner of animal law. He will be speaking about his new book, Rattling the Cage, in which he argues that basic legal rights should be extended to nonhuman animals, beginning with chimpanzees and bonobos.

Also, please save the date of April 25th for a presentation by Scott Myers and his client, Jerry Friedman. Mr. Friedman is suing Kaiser Permanente for religious discrimination, battery, and other claims based on his vegan beliefs.

The presentation on March 20th will be held from 7 p.m. in Room 1430, which is located on the ground floor of the Law School very close to the north entrance of the Law School.

There is no charge to attend the event. Parking is available at UCLA for the price of $5 per car. The following directions will enable you to enter UCLA at the point closest to the Law School:

405 to Sunset heading toward UCLA (east)

Sunset to Hilgard (turn right; south)

Hilgard to Wyton (turn right; west)

There will be a parking information booth directly in front of you.

Attendants at the booth will take your $5 and direct you to nearest parking lot.

The Law School is the building directly south of the parking booth.

If you have any questions, please contact me by reply e-mail or contact Melissa Bjorkenstam (Chair of the Animal Law Speaker Series) at [email protected] 

We look forward to seeing you on March 20th.
