Pushing the Boundaries: Domestic and International Legal Limits of Animal Protection Laws

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Adverse legal decisions in state and federal courts, as well as international bodies like the World Trade Organization (WTO), can overturn or dilute vital animal protection laws. Legal experts in the fields of animal protection, constitutional, and international trade law will take a critical look at recent cases and issues that are shaping the field of animal protection law, including the NMA v. Harris case at the Supreme Court, the Tuna – Dolphin and Seals disputes at the WTO, and the legal obstacles to horse slaughter restarting in the U.S. The panel will offer recommendations about how to avoid – and defend against - a legal challenge to your hard-won legislative victory for animals.
