Animal Law Certificate

The goal of the Animal Law Certificate is to provide students with sufficient education and experience so they will 1) attain an in-depth understanding of the animal related legal fields, and 2) acquire the skills and knowledge that will prove valuable to employers hiring recent graduates. The Animal Law Certificate focuses on substantive coverage and experiential learning. At the same time, the Certificate recognizes that animal law spans many areas of legal study, and thus requires a broad, general legal education, which includes courses on civil rights. Accordingly, the credit expectations for specialized courses in animal law are correspondingly lower than might otherwise be expected. Students who complete the requirements for the program are entitled to a certificate in animal law.
