Studies have proven nonhuman animals have deep emotions, understand each others’ minds, live in complicated societies, transmit culture, use sophisticated communication, solve difficult problems, and even mourn the loss of their loved ones. Just like humans do. However, by law, they are deemed property.
This course will examine the current legal protections for nonhuman animals, the challenge of obtaining standing, and the legal characteristics of fundamental rights.
27 General MCLE Credits will be requested for this program from the Oregon State Bar.
