Committee on Animals and the Law has excellent presenters lined up for
our practical discussion on laws relating to animals.

present on how to plan for an animal’s care after death or if you are otherwise
unable to care for your pet yourself.

animals, including how conflict resolution can work for parties involved in
divorce and other kinds of relationships that have come to an end.

sometimes confusing federal and state laws governing the rights of people with
disabilities to use service animals and emotional support animals in public
areas, the workplace, housing and educational settings.
