Lewis and Clark Law School Delves into Farm-Animal Policy

Lawyer and Our Hen House Co-founder Mariann Sullivan will teach a course on animal law this fall.

This fall, Mariann Sullivan, co-founder of animal-welfare multimedia hub Our Hen House, will join the faculty of Lewis and Clark Law School as the first visiting professor to its renowned animal law program. Already a seasoned legal scholar with experience teaching at some of New York’s top law schools, Sullivan will be bringing her expertise to two classes at the Portland-based school’s Center for Animal Law Studies, including one about animals in agriculture—a topic Sullivan is especially excited to explore. “By and large, the animals that people eat have been erased from the law and hidden from sight,” she says. “It’s so exciting to focus on an area where the law is just starting to address an aspect of society that so many people feel has gone awry.”
