ABOUT US

The AALL Animal Law Caucus was formed in 2010 to support the efforts of law librarians, academics and practitioners in the research, teaching, scholarship, and practice of animal law. Its purpose is to recognize and further the ongoing work of AALL members in this growing area of law.

The Animal Law Caucus is a legal resource for non-human, animal related humane issues, which arise from and have an effect upon our legal system.
Members:


    a)  monitor and provide comment on relevant
          legislation and policy-making decisions
          at various levels of government


    b)  offer legal education programs on animal
          law;


    c)  compile and provide access via the website
          to relevant statutes, court decisions, and
          administrative determinations and reports
          and


    d)  raise the profile of the field of animal law.

ALC LEGISLATION COMMITTEE

The mission of the Animal Law Caucus Legislation Committee is to keep ALC members apprised of current legislative activity for both state and federal legislation. The Committee documents sites highlighting bill status and information encompassing animal law across all legal topics. Whether the subject entails criminal law, torts, or wills and trusts, the ALC Legislation Committee will highlight the advancement of animal law and may from time to time call upon its members to support significant initiatives.
