Animal Law Review

Animal Law Review is celebrating its 25th Anniversary. 

This year the 25th Anniversary journal will contain three issues. Volume 25, Issue 3 will be a special “Look-back” publication that will contain updates from Authors who published with Animal Law Review at the beginning. 



Dating back to 1994, Animal Law Review is the nation’s oldest law journal devoted entirely to the discussion of legal issues relating to animals. Soon entering its twenty-fifth year of publication, Animal Law Review has gained national recognition, boasting several hundred subscribers.

The area of animal law is a broad and burgeoning field, touching upon a host of other areas of law including property law, contract law, intellectual property law, criminal law, torts, and administrative law, just to name a few. Animal legal issues include topics such as endangered species protection, regulating animals used in agriculture, animal testing, issues facing companion animals, and animal cloning. Animal Law Review is dedicated to providing a balanced, scholarly forum for discussing these and other animal-related legal issues.
