2019 Journal of Animal and Natural Resource Law Symposium

The Dilemma of Wild Horses and What To Do With Them

The 2019 JANRL Symposium will be held on Friday, March 1, 2018, from 9:30am-3:00pm in the Castle Board Room at the Michigan State University College of Law. JANRL's Managing Editor, Katie Hendricks, with the help of her Symposium Committee, has assembled an excellent collection of scholars, practitioners, and experts to speak on the subject of this year's symposium. The topics that will be covered include, but are not limited to, the protection and management of wild horses and burros on public lands. Although registration is open to the public, the Journal requests that all who plan to attend the Symposium register in advance of the event so an accurate meal count may be obtained.

· Ann Griffin, Director of Advocacy for the Michigan Humane Society, and Chair of the Animal Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan
