Protecting Fur, Fins & Feathers
In recent years, many states and localities have passed or are considering first-of-their kind animal protection laws within their borders but have found their legislation at the courthouse steps from opponents claiming Constitutional supremacy. Watch the Committee on Animals and the Law for a practical discussion on how the Dormant Commerce Clause line of cases has shaped existing animal-protection laws from eggs to veal crates to shark fins and furs, and how these past precedents may impact pending state legislation in New York and across the country.
This program will be the first installment of a two-part series on the role of Constitutional Law in animal protection.
