Two exciting updates regarding animal law at Harvard Law School:
1) This fall, HLS offers its first-ever Wildlife Law course, with Professor Jonathan Lovvorn, Senior Vice President of Animal Protection Litigation and Investigations at the Humane Society of the United States.
2) Also this fall, HLS hosts its first-ever Animal Law Fellow: Delcianna Winders, Deputy General Counsel at the PETA Foundation.
Both of these updates thanks to the generous gift by Bradley L. Goldberg.
In other exciting animal law news, a New York judge at least temporarily granted the personhood right of habeas corpus to two chimpanzees. (This comes a few months after an Argentina court made a similar decision for an orangutan.)
