Animal Law Courses

Animal law overlaps with many traditional areas of the law such as torts, criminal, constitutional and property law. Animal law is rooted in the practical application of statutory and decisional law but also explores legal theory and jurisprudence. In animal law we ask fundamental questions about the nature of a legal right or interest, the manner in which the law often creates or entrenches power imbalances, and how those imbalances impact animals.
