Abstract

This article explores the obstacles to obtaining legal rights for animals, both within the animal rights movement and within the broader political context. The author examines in which arena legal change might best be sought - the courts, the legislature, state governments, or the federal government. Finally, it makes a number of suggestions as to what type of laws would be the most successful in advancing the interests of animals.
