Practicing Animal Law: What Every Attorney Needs to Know About How Laws Impact the Animals in Our Homes and Lives.

A practical discussion on laws relating to animals. Topics to be discussed include: planning for an animal's care after the owner's death or incapacity; conflict resolution with respect to animal custody upon dissolution of relationships; and laws that focus on service and emotional support animals.

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

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

Debra Hamilton ( ) will present on how to use conflict resolution to resolve disputes involving animals, including how conflict resolution can work for parties involved in divorce and other kinds of relationships that have come to an end.  

Sim Goldman, Esq. will explore the complex and 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.
