Hi! I’m Beth. I created this blog as a 1L at Saint Louis University School of Law in 2011. I recently graduated with my J.D. in 2015 and will take the Missouri Bar in February 2016.

The goal of this blog is to create a den of information about legal issues animal welfare advocates will likely encounter. Even though my writing can be somewhat sarcastic, I am very optimistic about the future of Animal Welfare as the number of people passionate about making a difference in this field grows by leaps and bounds. If the information or comments in my blog inspire just one more person to become an advocate for animals, in this country or any other, then my mission will be complete.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to contribute an article, or you would like to see an article about a particular subject. I love research, and I like taking a lot of information and putting it into digestible pieces more palatable to the public.
