CLE - Intellectual Property and the Legal Status of Animals

For its 2019 Spring Seminar, the DePaul Center for Animal Law will focus on Intellectual Property and the Legal Status of Animals. Our first two panels will look at the intersection of trademarks, copyrights, and patents and animal rights with topics such as branding, marketing deals, the “monkey selfie copyright dispute,” and meat-free meats.

Our featured speaker will be Justin Marceau of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law who will be speaking about his book on the intersection between Animal Law and Criminal Law, published by Cambridge University Press.
