Assistant Clinical Professor of Law, and Director, Legal Practice Program, UConn Law School
Jessica Rubin is the Director of UConn Law School's Legal Practice Program, a rigorous and required program that teaches fundamental lawyering skills of Interviewing, Counseling, Negotiation, Legal Research and Writing, and Contract Drafting. Professor Rubin also teaches Animal Law - a field in which she is a widely recognized expert. She is the Director of UConn's Animal Law Clinic. Professor Rubin was instrumental in creating Desmond's Law, which allows Connecticut courts to appoint advocates - law students under supervision - in animal cruelty cases. She supervises students and appears in court to advocate for justice in animal cruelty cases. A member of the Connecticut and New York Bars and the Animal Legal Defense Fund, Professor Rubin's main areas of legal and scholarly interest include: practical skills instruction, with a focus on business transactional lawyering; writing and research instruction; and animal law, a subject about which she organized a recent on-campus symposium entitled, ""Investigating and Prosecuting Animal Cruelty Cases". She is a graduate of Cornell University and Cornell Law School. Professor Rubin was awarded a University Provost's Award for Public Engagement in 2017. She was also honored during National Justice for Animals Week 2018 by the Animal League Defense Fund.
Your RSVP will save pets' lives!
Funds raised by Diamonds in the Ruff will support the medical needs of CHS pets - pets like Koopa, a senior Yorkshire terrier with diabetes, who received life saving medical care before finding his forever home. Some pets only need spay/neuter procedures, while others suffer with chronic conditions and need complicated surgeries. CHS cares for pets statewide through three Pet Wellness and Adoption Centers (in Newington, Waterford and Westport), community pet wellness clinics, and the Fox Memorial Clinic, a low-fee, public veterinary clinic in Newington.
