Animal Law Courses in Florida

According to the National Center for Animal Law, at Lewis & Clark, there are approximately seventy law schools that offer a course in animal law and that number is growing every year. The Animal Legal Defense Fund reports that seven of Florida's ten law schools now offer a course in animal law. Those listed include:

  • Florida Coastal School of Law (Jacksonville, FL)
  • Florida State University College of Law (Tallahassee, FL)
  • Nova Southeastern University (Ft. Lauderdale, FL)
  • St. Thomas Univeristy School of Law (Miami, FL)
  • Stetson University School of Law (Gulfport, FL)
  • University of Florida, Levin College of Law (Gainesville, FL)
  • University of Miami School of Law (Miami, FL)
Any word on when Barry, FAMU, or Florida International will join the trend?

Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Florida does indeed offer an animal law class: Animal Rights Law Seminar. It is not offered every semester. Currently it is taught by Central Florida attorney Peggy Hoyt, of Hoyt & Bryan. Students are required to write a paper on an animal topic and participate in class by teaching a chapter of the required text book.
