Course Outline: Animal law is the study of statutory and decisional law in which the nature—legal, social, or biological—of non-human animals is an important factor. A wide variety of issues are examined, including those that fall into the general categories of Torts, Property Law, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Contracts, Wills/Trusts, and some selected Federal legislation. Animal law as presented in this course is not synonymous with “animal rights” or with any particular political, moral, or ethical agenda. Rather, it is an objective and logical specialization of the law—one with a growing number of cases and statutes, increasing public and practical interest, and significantly different historical, legal, and philosophical foundations than most other areas of law.
