Animal Law Section

The mission of the Animal Law Section is to evolve our thinking on animal issues for the Cleveland area, Cuyahoga County, Ohio and the United States. We will look at animal-related problems and the law as it exists today and assist in its development toward improving the quality of life for all species including humans. We will educate lawyers, judges, and others about the field and thereby improve the practice of law.
