Animal Personhood: A Debate

Here are video and audio recordings of this event, sponsored by the Federalist Society's Practice Groups, and featuring John W. Wade Professor of Law of Pepperdine University School of Law and Steven M. Wise, President of Nonhuman Rights Project, Inc.
"Is the concept of animal rights more about the restriction of human activity, or about truly granting rights to animals? Do current animal welfare laws provide sufficient protections to animals? Should animals have the ability to challenge their own detention, though the writ of habeas corpus?"
