Animal Justice Welcomes New Articling Students

Animal Justice Canada welcomes our 2014-2015 Articling Students. Sarah Ure and Stefanie Stamm join us fresh from graduating law school from the University of Victoria and the University of Ottawa, respectively.

Stefanie completed an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice before going to law school. As a law student, Stefanie extensively researched the issue of animals used in testing and lab facilities. She wrote her major legal paper on cosmetic testing on animals and wrote her directed research paper on medical testing on animals. Stefanie is originally from Calgary and inseparable from her German Shepherd dog, Indiana.

Sarah is originally from Calgary, where she completed undergraduate degrees in Psychology and English. She obtained her law degree at the University of Victoria, where she was an active member of the Student Animal Legal Defence Fund, a student-run group committed to raising awareness of animal law issues in the school and community.  Sarah was also active in the Environmental Law Club and Clinic, in which she completed major papers and projects on animal-related issues. Sarah’s family includes five dogs and one cat (who thinks he’s a dog).

We are very excited to have these two animal justice advocates join our team.
