Animal Legal & Historical Center
College of Law Professor David Favre (Editor-in-Chief) and Rebecca Wisch (Assistant Editor) are approaching their fourth year maintaining a comprehensive website devoted to animal law. There are presently over 700 full text cases (US, Historical and UK ) and 975 U.S. statutes on animal law fully available on the site, with Michigan and California being very comprehensive. Information on more than 38 animal-related topics is available to users, including a number of legal articles addressing a wide variety of animal topics, expert explanations and materials, including policies, publications, briefs and historical documents. It also includes navigation through topics, laws, subject areas and species as well as a general search engine for queries relating to animal law.
Containing legal materials at the statewide, national and international levels, the web site includes a wide variety of animal related legal issues such as animal fighting, genetic engineering, exotic pets, and anti-cruelty laws. Favre hopes that the site will eventually serve as the sole destination for individuals seeking legal information and publications on all animal-related issues.
