Animal Rights Presentation.  Professor Bublick's Civil Rights class will hold a seminar on animal issues on Thursday, April 10 at 10:00 a.m. in Room 139. The title of the presentation is "History and Humanity." We are holding this in honor of Susan Barber's love for animals. We would like to invite the Law School Community to this special learning opportunity. Please join us as we learn about the rights of our little friends. "History and Humanity" offers a 5,000-year perspective on human philosophy, religion and social belief as it affects animal life. From the debates of ancient Greek philosophers to the revolutions of modern animal welfare advocates, this program is designed to enlighten its audience about little-known details regarding the rights of non-humans. Also included is information about modern animal-related belief systems and the laws and services human beings have created to help protect animal life.
