Legal issues with animals occur in several arenas: housing, real
estate, health, agriculture and business, to name only a few.
Attorneys have only recently begun practices that
include animal law, which makes it one of the more exciting fields
of law. This website provides information for Committee members,
attorneys and members of the public who have an interest in the
growing field of animal law.
This Committee was originally conceived by the late Lorraine
Power Tharp, past president of the Association, who wanted to highlight
the growing field of Animals and the Law and to educate the profession,
specifically the membership, about the issues that arise in the law in
relation to animals.
