    Dr. Paul Locke

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Paul Locke has been honored as the 2014 Distinguished Visiting Professor of Animal Law and Science by the Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark Law School. Professor Locke is an Associate Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and he will be on campus this summer to teach his popular course on the laws, regulations, and ethics of animal testing.

The course, entitled 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 also have the rare opportunity to participate in exclusive field trips to research facilities that use animals as well as alternatives, in order to engage those in the field directly with their questions and concerns.

This course fills quickly, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible.
