As a part of the 2012 Ohio State Bar Association’s annual convention, local attorney Mark Bamberger presented to his peers his publication entitled, A Litigator’s Guide to Fitting Animals into Environmental Law, a paper which deals with primarily the fact that animals in Ohio find very little protection under the law.
Dr. Mark Bamberger proffers that those litigating in support of animals in the State of Ohio must think creatively in finding strategies and tactics in order to protect Ohio’s animal populations.
Within the Extract, Bamberger relates “Environmentalists have always been a little tone deaf when it comes to valuating environmental resources; including the value of preserving herds of animals”.
About the 2012 Ohio State Bar Association Annual Convention
As a part of the convention each year, the Ohio State Bar Association provides attorneys with an opportunity to not only learn in small peer groups, but also collect Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits in a classroom setting. At this year’s convention, more than 825 attendees were able to take an opportunity to learn from the most notable of Ohio’s legal specialists, respected for their work in and out of the courtroom.
Dr. Mark Bamberger shares, “The OSBA conference is really a great opportunity to network and to learn from those who specialize in their fields. The sessions provide us with a multitude of topics to choose from including consumer protection, litigation, corporate compliance, family law, estate planning, M&A, and of course my favorite topic, animal law”.
