The Animal Law Committee of the American Bar Association TIPS Section has two incredibly exciting upcoming CLE programs. The committee is trying out a new format — teleconferences — in hopes of reaching the widest audience possible. After all, lawyers who care about animals are everywhere, and the animals need every single one of them to stay up to date.
On September 23, Michael Dorf, Joyce Tischler and Madeline Bernstein will be discussing Deconstructing US v Stevens: Animal Cruelty and Freedom of Speech. This 90 minute program starts at 1 PM EST.
On September 28, Temple Grandin, Cheryl Leahy and Craig Pease will be speaking about Animal Rights and the Public’s Right to Know: Farmed Animal Welfare and Consumer Labeling Issues. This program is also 90 minutes and starts at 11 AM EST. I will be moderating, and I have to say I am pretty darn excited.
If you are thinking of attending, or know someone who might be interested, please register ASAP, since the programs will only go forward if they have sufficient registrants two weeks ahead of time. Hope to “see” you there.
