“Animal law is where environmental law was 20 years ago.  It’s in its infancy but growing,” said Paula Frasch, who heads the National Center for Animal Law at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland.

In 2000, only nine law schools had animal law studies; today about 100 do.   Incidents of abuse and a shifting national consciousness have made this one of the fastest growing fields in the legal profession.
