The world of animal law is changing rapidly as is the way the law views companion animals. Dogs today are able to be protected by orders of protection, they can be the beneficiaries of trusts, be represented by counsel and more and more. Courts are beginning to move closer to acknowledge the right to emotional damages for harming them. Unfortunately, dogs occasionally cause injuries to people and other animals, the penalty for which is often death (even when the law says they are innocent). This course looks at the dangerous dog statutes and prosecutions, the practice considerations and ethical dilemmas inherent in such prosecutions and offers practical advice to assist in representing our four legged clients.
