Animal law addresses legal issues pertaining to the rights and welfare of animals. It encompasses companion animals, agricultural animals, wildlife, and animals used in research. In addition to traditional treatises and law review articles, legal scholarship on animal law often draws on research from interdisciplinary fields such as animal behavior, psychology, sociology, or criminal justice studies.

This selective research guide highlights key online and print resources on animal law available at the Cleveland-Marshall Law Library. For help using any of these materials or finding additional ones, contact a research librarian.
