Animal LawThis course explores the animal law movement from its inception to its current status. This course examines the development, scope and current application of anti-cruelty laws governing laboratory test animals, trapping, animal fighting, animals used in entertainment, animals used for religious purposes or for educational purposes, and humane slaughter. The relationship of humane animal laws to conservation oriented fish and game law is studied. Federal and selected state laws on transportation of animals and on zoological gardens are reviewed. The course studies law reform, resources, expanding the scope of animal law, and the connection between environmental issues and animal issues at both the local and global levels.
