Friend or Food? Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows

Start/End Wednesday, March 13, 2013 12:00 PM EDT -- 12:50 PM EDT
Location Name JG 502

Come join the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund and Professor Marianne Sullivan for a candid round-table discussion of animals' roles in society and how we differentiate between them. Explore how the legal system protects (and sometimes fails) pets and pet-owners, the various doctrines that animal welfare advocates employ, and how we draw the line between the animals we love and the animals we eat. No prior knowledge of animal law is required! Delicious Maoz catering and homemade baked goods will be served. Contact: Fiona Finlay-Hunt, flh2102@columbia.edu
