Course Details

Animal Law Seminar

This Seminar explores how law does and should conceive of animals - for example, as sentient beings with rights, as the property of people, or as something in-between. We will consider the treatment of animals under federal law and state statutory and common law, with particular focus on the harms borne by animals in industrialized agriculture. Possible paths to reform will be explored. A brief (1-2 page) reflection paper each week and one substantial (25-30 pages) research paper required.
