About Us

As one of three legal journals housed in the Michigan State University College of Law, the Journal of Animal and Natural Resource Law possesses a unique history. ANRLR's roots are derived from a national animal rights organization that was gracious enough to fund our publication. In recent years, the Journal has expanded its subject matter to encompass the field of natural resource law. We invite you to gain a more complete picture of ANRLR's history by clicking this link.
