Animal law is a growing field that touches upon all facets of our profession. The Illinois State Bar Association needs a forum in which members can discuss, learn about, and develop animal law.
Like environmental law, animal law is an umbrella concept that covers many areas of law, including: cruelty statutes (criminal), municipal ordinances (administrative), veterinary malpractice and boarding/grooming injuries (civil), wildlife and farm animal management (regulatory) and questions of legal standing for animals (constitutional). It also covers all types of animals, ranging from companion to wildlife, entertainment, research, and farm animals.
