Year-in-Review Compendiums

Our United States and Canada Edition Year-in-Review Compendiums provide a curated, comprehensive view of developments in animal law and policy over the past calendar year as covered in the Brooks Animal Law Digests.

These Compendiums can be utilized as research tools for the animal law community and the general public, especially as a reference for studying trends and changes over time in the practice and application of animal law. We published our inaugural Compendiums in 2023 with the assistance of our Digest editorial teams at The Brooks McCormick Jr. Animal Law & Policy Program at Harvard Law School (United States) and the University of Toronto Faculty of Law (Canada).

How to use the Compendiums

This compendium is only as comprehensive as the Digest itself. It is a compilation of summarized and significant developments meant to guide and initiate further inquiry and research. The many sources that the Digest relies upon may not be exhaustive. The Compendiums are organized chronologically within each section based on the date of the weekly Digest issue that reported the event.
