Additional Book Details
(This is solely the CRIMINAL LAW chapter from ANIMAL LAW--NEW PERSPECTIVES ON TEACHING TRADITIONAL LAW (Hessler et al).)
Incorporating animal law cases within a criminal law course will help students understand how the law develops in response to new information and evolving social consensus about what constitutes cruelty and which species are protected. In the past three decades, criminal anti-cruelty laws have been strengthened in all fifty states. Students will learn how this plays out in prosecutions, convictions and sentencing. As just one example, students will be exposed to the sorts of questions prosecutors and judges have to consider concerning the pre-trial forfeiture of evidence when that evidence is a live animal who cannot be humanely stored in an evidence room.
