Stefanie Wilson assists Animal Legal Defense Fund with its cases and projects as a litigation fellow. Before joining ALDF, Stefanie clerked for the Honorable Harry T. Edwards of the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of California, Irvine School of Law (’14). While in law school, Stefanie participated in the National Animal Law Moot Court Competition and was founder and president of its Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) chapter. Stefanie earned her M.S. in Animals and Public Policy from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and her B.A. in biological anthropology from Harvard University.
Stefanie focuses on areas where the interests of animal protection intersect with other social justice issues. She will discuss how animal advocates (and aspiring animal advocates) can form common cause with people who are passionate about the environment, workers' rights/human rights, and freedom of speech and the media.
