LAW 7064 - Animal Law.

2 to 3 Credit Hours

This is an elective course. This course considers the developing area of animal law and the broad spectrum of statutory, administrative, and case law that animal law encompasses. The course will focus the ways animal law intersects with other, well- established areas of law. Selected topics include the study of standing and justiciability issues, difficulties associated with defining the term “animal,” torts committed both by and against animals, animals in sports and entertainment, and federal statutes, such as the Endangered Species Act and the Animal Welfare Act.
