As animal litigation and legislation continue to become more prevalent in the United States, animal advocates are bumping up against constitutional law issues. How can animals or animal advocates achieve standing in the courts? What is the cost/benefit analysis of adding a preemption clause in federal animal protection legislation? How do the limits on our right to free speech both help and harm animals? Why are the animals batting zero in the Supreme Court? Featuring practitioners and professors from around the country, this exchange of ideas, strategies and experiences promises to be an engaging dialogue you won’t want to miss.
