Last Wednesday, the Chicago Bar Association animal law committee, American Bar Association animal law committee and area law schools all came together for what will hopefully become an annual holiday networking event. John Marshall Law School was kind enough to host the evening and some 50 attorneys and students attended!
The JMLS Animal Law Society also gave an award to Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart. Sheriff Dart has a commendable track record for his ongoing efforts to combat dog fighting, as well as support of other local animal welfare issues. Here, Tom O'Donnell accepts the award on behalf of the Sheriff.
Party organizers, left to right: Tracy McGonigle, Chair, CBA Animal Law Committee, Amy Breyer, founding chair, CBA Animal Law Committee, and Sunny MacLachlan, JMLS trial advocacy professor and coach of the animal law moot court team.
Here are some more photos. Thanks to everyone involved for helping make this event a success!
