With apologies to Judge Frank Easterbrook, this podcast is (literally) about the law of the horse, pet. It features a conversation with animal lawyerAdam Karp. Adam exclusively practices animal law in Washington state. He founded and served as first chair of the Washington State Bar Association's Animal Law Section in 2002. He is also vice-chair of the American Bar Association's Animal Law Committee. Adam teaches animal law as an adjunct professor at both University of Washington and Seattle University. Animal Law, an emerging field, is now offered at over 70 law schools.
This conversation focuses on Adam's animal law practice, which is dedicated to "companion animals." Topics include: pet custody and the best interests of the dog standard, how the law places a value on an injured or deceased pet, the extension of rights to primates, speciesism, and Adam's "binine personality" (he fancies both cats and dogs).
