Portland Animal Law symposium at Lewis & Clark Law School

Lewis & Clark Law Law School’s Center for Animal Law Studies is hosting a free seminar this Saturday, September 12, 2009, on the Science, Ethics, and Law of Animal Testing in the 21st Century. According to the organizers, the

daylong symposium will explore the scientific, ethical, legal and regulatory challenges and opportunities that are generated by the vision to improve scientific outcomes using alternatives to animal testing contained in the National Academy of Science’s (NAS) National Research Council (NRC) Report on Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century.

As a Portland, Oregon animal lawyer, I’m looking forward to attending. Lewis & Clark Law has been a leader in establishing animal law as a recognized practice area, and the availability of programs like this is one of the great benefits of practicing in this city. Thanks to such programs, as well as journals such as Animal Law, the field is growing every day. Hope to see you there.
