2018 Journal of Animal and Natural Resource Law Symposium

Service Animals and the Law

The 2018 JANRL Symposium will be held on Friday, March 23, 2018, from 9:30am-3:30pm in the Castle Board Room at the Michigan State University College of Law. JANRL's Managing Editor, Lindsay Weiss, with the help of his 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, how service dogs are trained and the status of laws regarding service animals. 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.

  • Michigan Service dogs 
  • Canine Advocacy Program
  • Fair Housing Office 
  • Cummings, McClorey, Davis & Acho, PLC
  • Taylor Waters, Editor-in-Chief
