This research guide covers the law concerning companion animals and animals confined for human benefit. Many traditional areas of law combined make up animal law: torts, contracts, domestic relations, trusts and estates and criminal law among them. Animal law is the combination of case law, statutes and regulations that governs human interactions with animals. The laws are federal, state and sometimes even municipal. Often referred to as an emerging legal field, animal law is a "new" area of law with a long history. Laws concerning animals as property have existed since ancient times, but laws promoting the interests of animals on their own, not just as the property of humans, are a more recent concept. This research guide will provide an overview of the primary and secondary sources in animal welfare law research.
