To celebrate the new school year, let NYU Law treat you to dinner and a movie – with a green twist!

Following their successful Spring 2012 Meatless Monday campaign, the Office of Student Affairs, in conjunction with the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Environmental Law Society, the NYU Animal Studies Initiative and the NYU Environmental Studies Initiative, is proud to host a free dinner for students and faculty featuring a showcase of vegetarian offerings from NYU catering.

The dinner will highlight the impact that a meat-centric diet has on global climate change and the environmental benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle.

Following dinner, guests are invited to join NYU Law for a panel with documentarians Marisa Miller Wolfson and Graham Meriwether, featuring clips of their new films Vegucated and American Meat.  Vegucated follows the ups and downs of three New Yorkers as they agree to go vegan for six weeks. American Meat explores the need to develop sustainable animal agriculture in this country. Each guest will receive a movie snack pack, courtesy of SALDF, to enjoy or take home.
