Animal law is, in its simplest (and broadest) sense, a combination of statutory and decisional law in which the nature — legal, social, or biological — of non-human animals is an important factor. The fifth edition is updated significantly, while continuing to present a cohesive format that touches on many areas in which animals affect legal doctrines, case law, and legislative direction. Because animal law is not a traditional legal field, the book is largely framed according to traditional legal headings such as tort, contract, criminal and constitutional law. Each chapter sets out cases and commentary where animal law continues to develop its own doctrine. An important chapter on the commercial use of animals, introduced in the third edition, has been further updated with recent cases and statutory developments covering the significant areas of agriculture and biomedical research.

Review:

''As the field of animal law has grown by leaps and bounds, each edition of Animal Law has incorporated path breaking legal developments in all areas of animal law. Animal Law engages students and teachers alike through its thoughtful consideration of how the legal system operates with respect to many different kinds of animals, including companion animals and animals used in food production. The extensive teaching experience of the authors is evident in their selection of various types of legal materials, summaries of intellectual perspectives, and proposed discussion questions, which provide ample bases for interesting animal law classes in which different informed points of view can be considered.'' --Taimie Bryant, Professor of Law, UCLA School of Law (on a previous edition)
