Conceptualizing Our Relationships with Animals

Conceptualizing Our Relationships with Animals:

The Six Ways We Interact: Food, Clothing, Wildlife, Science, Pets, and Entertainment

Presented by: Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, University of Washington Chapter

The University of Washington School of Law’s 2013 Animal Law Conference is focused on examining the different ways we interact with and think about animals.

As society progresses, the ethical treatment of animals comes more to the forefront of people’s minds. The world of Animal Law is increasing because of this awareness.

Lawyers face issues today involving animals in entertainment, agribusiness, marine life protection, the animal shelter system, police brutality and so much more.

Please join us for an exciting and thoughtful interdisciplinary event that offers both practical and forward-thinking.

Program Highlights:

  • Ethics of Animals in Entertainment
  • Animal Rights in the Farming Industry
  • Obstacles for Companion Animal Protections
  • Marine Life Preservation
  • Issues in the Animal Shelter System
  • Discharging Firearms at Nonhuman Animals
