Traveling to San Diego next week as the South Carolina delegate to the International Animal Law Summit, our own Bradley Floyd has been invited as the legal delegate from South Carolina. This is the first year that South Carolina will be represented at this important and informational international summit. Delegates include experienced attorneys and industry leaders who have in-depth knowledge of animal law and are selected based upon their understanding of the substantive law, emerging trends, and their experience within the industry.
Organized by the San Diego County Bar Association, this two day education and networking summit connects animal law practitioners from around the globe. Topics discussed will include laws in California as well as updates on national and international judicial, administrative, or legislative legal changes. Over 30 delegates from states and countries will be present, and well as leaders from the American Bar Association, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. A networking reception follows the conference, sponsored by ABA TIPS Animal Law Committee.
According to Bradley, “I am humbled and honored to be a part of this Summit. I am grateful to be included in this group of animal law advocates who have advanced the welfare and care of domestic and international animals. I look forward to learning about developments and trending issues in animal law, and how the same might be applied here in South Carolina.”
We are proud of Bradley. His knowledge of the practice of law, ethics, and the ongoing efforts to improve the treatment and recognition of animals under the law – makes him a valuable asset to our firm, to the residents of the state of South Carolina, and beyond.
