College of Law offers an animal law course that provides a
comprehensive analysis of the legal protections afforded to
animals, as well as an examination of the application and enforcement
of those protections. Topics taught in the course include the history
of laws protecting animals, animal welfare
legislation, animal cruelty laws, and the various issues
confronting major lobbying and activist organizations.
The center connects students with field placement opportunities that allow them to earn academic credit by working in public agencies and private organizations dealing with animals and animal welfare issues. Learn more about the College of Law’s Field Placement Program.
