First Animal Law Clinic

A student at the University of Kansas law school is organizing an animal cruelty prosecution clinic.

Katie Barnett is dedicated to animals, and is organizing what is believed to be the first animal cruelty prosecution clinic in a US law school. A law student at the University of Kansas, Barnett plans on having students in the clinic make sure animal cruelty and animal control cases are prosecuted from start to finish. According to the local paper, The Wichita Eagle, Barnett says, “This is the chance for me to give the animals a voice and a place in the justice system.” The program is slated to start in fall 2011, and students will work directly with investigators at the Kansas Humane Society as well as prosecutors in Douglas County, Kan.
