The Animal Legal and Historical Center

The Animal Legal and Historical Center is a great resource for legal information relating to animals. Run by Michigan State University College of Law Professor and animal law pioneer David Favre, it is a comprehensive animal law online database.

The website contains primary legal materials like U.S. cases, statutes, administrative regulations, bills, and legislation, and international treaties and other global laws. It also contains secondary legal materials such as pleadings, briefs, historical material, and journal articles.

The database’s search function makes it easy to find information relating to any animal law issue. You can search by topic, state, country, or animal species. For example, to find all U.S. laws relating to dog fighting, choose animal fighting under select by subject.
