“One Earth: Globalism and Animal Law” Conference To Discuss Cutting-Edge Topics

Posted on October 9, 2008

In what is the longest running animal law conference in the world, the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund and Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon are bringing together many of the great minds at the vanguard of animal law and hundreds of conference attendees for a weekend of exciting panels and visionary speakers. Recognize some of these cutting-edge panel topics from recent headlines?

  • When animal control officers in Surry County, Virginia, discovered more than 50 dogs and evidence of dogfighting at a 15-acre property owned by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, the ensuing scandal sparked national outrage. While Vick was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison and the seized dogs were rehabilitated, the legal community was prompted to consider how to improve their tools for going after criminals engaged in the world of underground dogfighting .Win Grant, assistant United States attorney from the Eastern District of Virginia, and law professor Rebecca Huss, the court appointed guardian of Vick’s dogs, join a panel discussing Lessons Learned from the Vick Dogs.

Tickets for the event are sold out, however, podcasts of each panel will be available at animallawconference.org after October 20th.
