AALS Animal Law Section Third Annual Panel

David Cassuto

A few years ago, after many years in the wilderness, the animal law community successfully created a section within the American Association of Law Schools (AALS).  This year will be our third and we once again have a great panel lined up for the AALS annual meeting.  The skinny follows:   

Section on Animal Law

Topic: Working on the Wild Side: Wildlife and Animal Law

Moderator:  Rebecca Huss

Panelists:  Taimie Bryant, David Favre, Dale Goble, and Katherine Meyer

As Wildlife Law and Animal Law continue to evolve there are more instances in which they intersect.  Scholars and practitioners in both fields have much to learn from each other.  This panel presents one opportunity for such learning.  Speakers will address international and domestic wildlife matters.  They will also look at the Ringling Brothers case which, when decided, will offer the latest judicial thinking about intersection and development of both of these areas of law, and could expand upon the protections necessary for threatened species held in captivity in the United States.

Friday, January 8, 2010, 8:30 – 10:15 a.m.

Eglinton & Winton Room, 2nd Floor,
