Harvard Law Review Student Note on Animal Rights

The February 2009 edition of the Harvard Law Review (here) includes a student-written section on “Developments in the Law – Access to Courts.”  One of the subsections entitled “Aesthetic Injuries, Animal Rights, and Anthropomorphism” explores the expansion of animal rights through a claim that injury to an animal is an “aesthetic injury” to a human being with (traditionally cognizable) standing.  This is a clear and well-written student piece that is a good starting point for folks interested in animal law.
