Igor Purlantov Anticipates Animal Law Practice to Grow Rapidly in 2012

Animal Law Programs Set to Drive Law Practice Growth in the Next Five Years According to Igor Purlantov.

New York, NY (OPENPRESS) December 30, 2011 -- Animal law has recently gained strong recognition both inside the classroom and outside within the general public. According to Igor Purlantov this growth is due in large part to high profile donations from respected animal rights activists such as Bob Barker. In January of 2009 Mr. Barker donated $1 million to the University of Virginia School of Law to start its animal law rights program through his DJ&T Foundation. DJ&T has also made donations to animal law programs at Columbia, Duke, Harvard, Northwestern, Stanford, and the University of California in Los Angeles.

Mr. Purlantov believes that these generous donations have allowed animal law programs to grow and gain popularity within law schools which has also coincided with the increased widespread acceptance of animal welfare. Animal law programs are now taught in more than 120 law schools across the United States alone. This growth in animal law curriculum has not surprisingly also driven growth in animal law professions across the country according to Mr. Purlantov. Animal law now encompasses virtually every area of law including administrative, constitutional, criminal, disability, environmental, international trade, torts, and trusts.

Within the general public, recent outrage over high profile animal abuse cases has helped push much needed state and federal legislation. As the same time, the increasingly complex relationship between people and their pets has also driven many other positive changes within animal law says Mr. Purlantov.

The recent positive changes in animal law could not come sooner says Mr. Purlantov. As compassion over unnecessary animal suffering continues to grow within the general public, animal law will only continue to gain in popularity and expand as a legal field. Mr. Purlantov believes that this in turn will continue to drive legislation designed to protect animals and ultimately benefit the victims who now finally have a voice to speak up for them.
