Peter Hurd

Law Clerk

Peter is currently a law student at Lewis and Clark Northwestern School of Law, where he is a member of the Animal Law Review. His studies focus on the relationship between science, nature, and the law, and he hopes to leverage his education to help the world rapidly return to a stable climate. A lifelong animal lover, Peter began to take more interest in animal rights issues after noticing the link between the environmental harms and widespread animal suffering common to modern animal farming operations.

Since joining NEAVS, Peter has worked to make more information on common animal testing practices available to the public, and has submitted numerous Freedom of Information Act Requests to federal and state agencies and institutions.

Peter Holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in physics from Gustavus Adolphus College.
