It is often said that “animal law is all law” because of the many ways in which an issue involving an animal might arise in various fields of law. Whether it’s a constitutional challenge to a law that restricts the ability of undercover investigations to shed light on animal abuses or the link between animal cruelty and domestic violence, animals are part of our everyday life in astonishing and complex ways. This webinar is an exciting opportunity to learn how animal law intersects with other fields of law.
The Animal Law Boot Camp hosted experts in their respective fields for a half-day discussion on the ways in which animal issues and the laws surrounding them come into play with other fields of law. This program included sessions on constitutional law, environmental law, ethics, and criminal law.
