Richard L. Cupp -- Moving Beyond Animal Rights: A Legal/Contractualist Critique

Professor Richard L. Cupp, Jr. (Pepperdine), has published Moving Beyond Animal Rights: A Legal/Contractualist Critique, in the San Diego Law Review. The article articulates a contractualist approach to the question of legal personhood and rights for animals, asserting that both humans and animals would benefit from focusing on human responsibility for humane treatment of animals rather than focusing on the concept of rights for animals.
