  • Jennifer Friedman
    Canada's Animal Lawyer

The pandemic has shown many of us the importance of our animal companions in our lives just when the focus in recent years has turned to re-considerations of animals under the law. Jurisprudence and legislation reflect this new awareness with landmark changes to the Criminal Code about animal cruelty, Family Court judges considering custody and access to pets within a divorcing household, and landlords rethinking their pet policies. Spend a few hours with our expert presenters on this evolving area to get up to speed.

  • Hear more about proposed extensions of human rights-type protections to non-humans (animals)
  • Understand how your clients' pets may be treated in contentious estates, family, and litigation matters
  • Get insight into changes in society's viewpoints that elevate pressing social issues to criminal acts
