The Law of Humane Science 921-OL2

January 27, 2015

The Law of Humane Science explores the complex regulatory framework that governs the use of animals in scientific experiments in biomedical research and in toxicity testing. Students will learn first-hand about the latest litigation and policy developments from experts who are at the forefront of this quickly evolving field. Students who enroll will have access to lectures from July 13 - 24, and will participate in live talks and course exercises with Professor Locke throughout the two weeks.


This online course is available for credit to J.D. and LL.M students around the world. Please check with your law school to ensure it will accept distance education for graduation credit.

The ABA requires that all students must have completed 28 credit hours before registering for this course.

This course is also open to auditing students. Please see our website for more detailed information on auditing.


The American Bar Association accreditation standards require students to regularly attend the courses in which they are registered. Lewis & Clark expects students to attend classes regularly and to prepare for classes conscientiously. Specific attendance requirements may vary from course to course. Any attendance guidelines for a given class must be provided to students in a syllabus or other written document at the start of the semester. Sanctions (e.g., required withdrawal from the course, grade adjustment, and/or a failing grade) will be imposed for poor attendance.
