Animal Law Symposium
Virtual Animal Law Symposium: COVID-19 and Animals
April 23 – 24, 2021
This two-day online featured panels on zoonotic diseases and COVID-19, factory farming and the realities of our food system, our problematic relationship with animals in captivity, and COVID-19 policy recommendations. To watch the sessions on demand click here.
Over the past year, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has developed a series of papers outlining policy strategies designed to reduce specific zoonotic risks. Read the first three papers in the series here.
The symposium was approved for 3.5 continuing legal education (CLE) credits by the Oregon State Bar Association. Credits were included with registration and attorneys must watch all sessions, either live or on-demand, to receive full credit.
Most states will accept credits from other mandatory CLE states such as Oregon, but please check with your local bar association to confirm.
