The Future of Animal Law: ILAR Roundtable Workshop & Pre-Workshop Webcast.

Tuesday, December 12, 2017
Understanding laboratory animal law is necessary and fundamental for all researchers relying on results from animal research, as well as for laboratory animal veterinarians, institutional officials, members of Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs), and veterinarians in training. Both the scope and particulars of these laws are important. Those interested in or impacted by the laboratory animal laws can have significantly different perspectives about the scope or efficiency of the regulations or their implementation.
 
You are invited to join a workshop and a pre-workshop webcast to explore the future of federal laboratory animal law in the United States, hosted by the Roundtable on Science and Welfare in Laboratory Animal Use of the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research, the Animal Law and Policy Program and the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics of the Harvard Law School.
