About the Seminar
The evidence of a link between animal cruelty and human cruelty is resulting in changed laws and legal approaches to animal cruelty, domestic violence, child abuse, and juvenile criminal offenses. This presentation addresses the link, how the link between animal and human cruelty may impact a lawyer's clients, and the legal tools available to address use of animal cruelty or incidents of animal cruelty to commit other offenses or control other persons. The materials will include information about S.C. laws on animal cruelty, recent legal changes permitting pets to be covered in S.C. by court protective orders, and other legal trends across the country.
