"Certainly the animal law field needs more good women and men doing the legal work on behalf of animals—the sentiment is that there is a large amount of change needed and that it will not come without continued work in the courts and in the houses of the legislature. So newcomers with an interest in and a willingness to learn are not only welcome, they are vital to the growth of the field." -- Bruce Wagman
Bruce has a ton of experience in these cases, and knows where he is coming from. I found the column very well-written, and would encourage anyone considering becoming involved in a legal case involving an animal (whether as a party or as an attorney) to read it.
