October 23, 2013
*Limit: Animal Law LLM students only
*offered every year
This seminar is a two semester requirement for all Animal Law LL.M. students, staffed by the Animal Law Program faculty and staff. As part of the seminar, each student prepares a paper on an animal law topic of his/her choice. During the fall semester, faculty and guests lead discussions on animal law topics of interest to the group, such as new case law, emerging trends, current events, policy, or faculty works in progress. During the spring semester, students make individual presentations on their papers. (Students who begin the program or seminar in the spring will do their paper presentation in the following fall semester).
The seminar schedule and format may vary each year. In general, it will meet for two hours every other week in the fall and for two hours every week in the second half of the spring semester. The exact schedule will be set prior to the beginning of classes. Students are graded based on overall participation in the seminar throughout the year (1/3) and on their paper and presentation (2/3).
