Like environmental law, animal law is an umbrella concept that covers many areas of law, including: cruelty statutes (criminal law), municipal ordinances (administrative law), veterinary malpractice and boarding/grooming injuries (civil law), wildlife and farm animal management (regulatory law), pet trusts (estate planning law), and questions of legal standing for animals (constitutional law). Animal law also covers all types of animals, ranging from companion animals to wildlife, entertainment, research, and farm animals.
