Join the Law Library for pet therapy in the student lounge on Monday,December 8.  Several dogs and a llama named Deacon Blue will be available to all for relaxing companionship from noon to 1pm – drop in any time!

This time there’s an added twist, attendees can enter into a prize drawing to win the gentleman in the picture that we’ve named Lloyd the Llama. Who doesn’t need a stuffed llama in their life, right?!

This program is co-sponsored by the Cornell Law Library, Cornell Companions, a pet visitation program sponsored by the Cornell University veterinary community, and the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund Club.
