Animal law is an emerging field that encompasses a variety of legal disciplines. Today more and more lawyers are entering into this field or finding they have cases that deal with animal law.

The book covers every major aspect of private civil and criminal litigation of animal law disputes in the areas of tort, contract, property, insurance, and criminal law. In the fifteen chapters of this book, you'll find valuable information and cases dealing with topics like personal injury and negligence, disputes over animal possession; wills and trusts involving animals; veterinary malpractice; insurance litigation; federal cases and Constitutional rights; animal ownership and land use rights; criminal cases; and more. There is even a chapter covering practical matters for lawyers handling animal cases, including fee agreements, discovery techniques, preparing your client, settlements and collecting judgments.
