The DePaul Center for Animal Law cordially invites you and your colleagues to join us for this year’s symposium, “Revisiting the Line between Free Speech and Obscenity: U.S. v. Stevens and Its Impact on Animal Welfare”. The symposium will take place at the DePaul College of Law on Thursday, September 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The symposium will evaluate the constitutional issues raised in Stevens, as well as draw attention to the destructive influence of dog fighting on our local community. Panelists include Bob Corn-Revere, co-counsel for defendant Robert Stevens, Randall Lockwood, PhD, Senior Vice-President for Anti-Cruelty Initiatives and Legislative Services for the ASPCA and internationally renowned bioethicist, author and veterinarian, Dr. Michael W. Fox.
Additionally, we are pleased to welcome Jeff Jenkins and Sean Moore as our keynote speakers. Jeff and Sean are part of the HSUS End Dogfighting campaign, an innovative program that relies on community outreach methods to change attitudes and behaviors between people and their pit bulls. For more information on Jeff and Sean, as well as a complete list of panelists, please visit the Center’s website at http://www.law.depaul.edu/centers_institutes/animal_law/.
