Professor Rebecca Huss
Please join us at the Hyatt Michigan C, Sunday, July 17 from 12:30 to 2:00 pm for our annual Animal Law Caucus meeting to hear Professor Rebecca Huss speak on Context Matters: Service and Assistance Animals Under Federal Law.
Professor Huss is Professor of Law at Valparaiso University Law School, where she teaches several courses including Animal Law. Her primary focus in research and writing is on the changing nature of the relationship between humans and their companion animals and whether the law adequately reflects the importance of that relationship in addition to issues relating to service and assistance animals. Professor Huss also focuses on breed discriminatory legislation, laws that deem a dog dangerous based merely on breed.
Professor Huss has a Master of Laws in International and Comparative Law from the University of Iowa College of Law and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Richmond School of Law. She is past Chair of the American Bar Association's Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section's Animal Law Committee, and is a Past Chair of the American Association of Law School's Animal Law Section.
