Professor Joyce Tischler provides a comprehensive overview of laws affecting the billions of animals used for food or fiber in the United States. People often mistakenly assume that there is already a system of federal and state laws and regulations that provides ample protections to farmed animals. Professor Joyce Tischler reviews how the majority of farmed animals in the United States are raised in concentrated animal feed operations (CAFOs), as well as the statutory and case law relevant to their care and treatment, including where and how the law falls short. The webinar is designed for an audience new to farmed animals legal issues, but provides detailed legal analysis such that the webinar is a valuable resource and will equally interesting to experienced practitioners.
