I gave this Lawline lecture last December on New York farm animal welfare law. I first talk about animal welfare laws from the national perspective and then move into New York specifically. I think it helps to see the forest for the trees and better understand where New York fits in nationally with these issues. I discuss both misdemeanor and felony animal cruelty and lightly touch on criminal procedure issues (including the search and seizure of farm animals). The full materials for this lecture are available via Lawline here. Follow along with the Powerpoint slides below.
