Texas: animal law a growing field

Despite the overly cutesy title (a common problem) "Lawyers turn career into pet project", is a nice article by Mary Flood in the Houston Chronicle about the growing number of attorneys practicing animal law in that state. You might not think of a traditionally conservative, still proudly wild-west place like Texas to be a bastion of progressive thought in any area... but I can personally attest to the fact that animal law is thriving in the Lone Star state. I was fortunate enough to be invited to last year's annual Animal Law Institute by the animal law section of the Texas Bar and the South Texas College of Law. They put on a terrific program; if you have a chance to check out a future program, I highly recommend it.
