ABSTRACT :
The United States has always had laws related to animals, but the field of “animal law” has only recently emerged. In Animal Law in a Nutshell, the text that this Capsule condenses, the authors explain that “[a]nimal law brings together statutes and cases from multiple fields of law that consider, at their core, the interests of animals or the interests of humans with respect to animals. The way in which the law defines and treats animals often has depended on prevailing public attitudes about morality and economics.” Animal law marks an intersection of many disciplinary areas of law, which creates overlapping and complex issues. This concise version of a Nutshell (itself highly condensed) is not a comprehensive examination of animal law in the United States, but will provide a good introduction to understanding the primary areas of concern.
