2 credits

9:00am - 12:00pm
Wood Hall, Smith seminar room

Prosecuting animal cruelty cases presents a host of unique issues when compared to other types of criminal casework. This course will explore the existing procedural laws with an emphasis on the practical application in animal cruelty cases. Students will also explore the issues attendant to overcoming system or institutional bias against investigating and prosecuting these types of cases.  While there will be some overlap with a standard criminal procedure class, this seminar will hone in on the many unique rules codified to address animals as victims.  Student led discussions will be part of the format.
