Last week, I had the honor of presenting at the Washington Criminal Law Institute’s annual CLE. My topic was the intersection between Animal Law and Criminal Law. I think many were surprised at the number of laws, on the Federal and State level, that involve animals and have criminal implications. I covered everything from the Endangered Species Act to Michael Vick’s conviction for dog fighting at the Federal level, as well as the various state statutes. This is a very dynamic area of law, with a number of cases with constitutional-level questions. I have attached my materials for those of you who have asked.
