Welcome to the State Bar of Georgia’s Animal Law Section Website
In 2009, the State Bar of Georgia became the 20th State Bar in the United States to offer its members an Animal Law section. Animal Law is a combination of statutory and case law in which the legal and sociological aspects of animals are the primary focus. Animal law has applications to companion animals, exotic animals, farm animals, animals used for entertainment purposes, wildlife as well as animals used/raised for food and research.
The purpose of the State Bar of Georgia’s Animal Law Section is to provide networking and educational opportunities to its members. Animal law has useful applications for practitioners in many legal arenas such as landlord/tenant law, criminal law, wills and trusts, personal injury and tort claims, non-profit corporations, agricultural, local government and administrative law. Our mainstream section will provide a forum for members to exchange ideas, study, and understand laws, regulations, and case law pertaining to all areas of Animal Law.
