Presented by the ISBA Animal Law Section

Don't miss this opportunity to discuss the hottest topics currently under debate in the animal law arena – from the use of therapy dogs in the courts and methods for alternative dispute resolution, to animal shelter laws and some of the most high profile issues in animal advocacy, including puppy mills, farm animal welfare, and captive wildlife regulations. Attorneys with a strong interest in the growing area of animal advocacy and the practice of animal law – as well as practitioners who may find themselves with just one or two matters concerning a conflict involving animals – who attend this full-day seminar gain a better understanding of:

  • How courts across the country have implemented the use of therapy dogs;
  • Which efforts should be implemented in an effort to stop the damaging practices of some animal breeding establishments;
  • How alternative dispute resolution can help resolve animal conflicts with greater emotional comfort and stability; 
  • How the Humane Society of the U.S. has helped protect laboratory chimps; 
  • How the Zanesville incident influenced the enactment of Ohio’s new Dangerous Wild Animal Act;
  • Which laws and regulations apply to the various functions of local animal shelters, all-breed shelters, and breed rescues;
  • The new developments in the farm animal arena, including egg production and swine gestation crates; and
  • The unique ethical issues and concerns an attorney may face when representing an animal law case.

Shelter Law: Key Case Law in Broad Areas of Liability, and a Survey of Law and Regulation Applicable to Various Shelter Functions
In the last 10-15 years, there has been an explosion in the number of local animal shelters coming into existence, as well as an increase in the number and size of large urban area all-breed animal shelters (many of which follow no-kill policies and practices) and breed rescues. Attorneys are often asked to advise these shelters and rescues, but with no single resource on the law pertaining to animal sheltering, the task can be daunting. This segment looks at the laws and regulations applicable to the various shelter functions, as well as recent case law concerning a few select broad areas of liability.
