It also considers current litigation challenging restrictions on access to farm and food production facilities, litigation involving anti-disparagement statutes, litigation regarding habeas corpus rights for animals, and efforts to elevate "right to farm " to a constitutionally protected status as a means of limiting animal welfare legislation. There are no prerequisites beyond the first year required course in constitutional law.
