About the Program

Animals touch every aspect of modern life—and law. They’re used for companionship, entertainment, food, fashion, and experimentation. The emerging and interdisciplinary field of animal law creatively leverages state and federal law, from California’s Unfair Competition Law to the United States Constitution, to advance the interests of our nonhuman friends. Join Vanessa Shakib for an introductory discussion on impact litigation and creative legal strategy for animals.
