Animal Law Seminar

Is there a place for the consideration of the interests of animals in the law? Throughout the semester, we will examine the historical and current status of animals in our legal system. Students will examine a diverse cross-section of law devoted to the controversial moral, ethical, and public policy considerations germane to efforts to balance the interests of animals and those of humans. The course is graded on regular class attendance, participation, a research paper, and a class presentation. Text: 5th Edition (2014) of ANIMAL LAW Cases and Materials.
