Maya Pardo recently earned a Postgraduate diploma in Law and Professional Practice at King’s College London, and is now studying for the Solicitor’s Qualifying Exam to become a solicitor in England and Wales. Prior to studying law, she sang in the opera chorus at the Saarland State Theatre in Saarbrücken, Germany for four years and previously completed a Master’s in Music at The Boston Conservatory.

She is also a trustee at The Animal Advocacy Project, where she helps draft objections to planning permission of new factory farms, highlighting the negative impacts of factory farms on rivers, wildlife, and drinking water.

She is also a member of World Animal Justice, where she contributed to an upcoming paper advocating for recognition of ‘crimes against animality,’ highlighting the connection between ecocide and zoocide. She is also a member of the UK Environmental Law Association and the UK Centre for Animal Law.
