Prosecuting Companion Animal Cruelty: Challenges, Triumphs, and Lessons Learned

Join The WCL Criminal Law Practitioner, The Women's Law Association, and The WCL Animal Law Society in welcoming Michelle Welch, Scott Giacoppo, and Porter for a two and a half hour session on common issues that prosecutors and law enforcement officers confront with animal cruelty cases. From the basics of seizing an animal from a cruelty case to managing the crime scene to issues at sentencing and on appeal, the speakers will walk us through the steps and highlight how to avoid the common pitfalls that can derail an animal abuse case.

Geared to legal professionals, law enforcement, law students, and other individuals with a general interest in improving the status of non-human animals in our society and protecting one of society’s most vulnerable victims.
