The Wildlife Law Seminar approaches the regulation of wildlife from an interdisciplinary perspective. The course begins by examining societal views of wildlife and the legal framework for regulating wild animals. It then focuses on specific topics within wildlife law, including hunting, wild and migratory birds, marine mammals, and ocean fisheries. Several classes are devoted to the Endangered Species Act and biodiversity, wildlife and native people, and international wildlife law. Other topics include feral and urban wildlife, captive wildlife, and the interplay of wildlife law and animal rights. Several field trips are scheduled. A research paper is required.
