The UCLA Animal Law Program owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to Mr. Bob Barker for his unwavering support for the field of animal law and his generous endowment gift to UCLA Law School, which funds events such as our upcoming workshop, Saving Animals’ Lives Through Shelter Rescue, on June 18, 2011.
Mr. Barker is a true friend to all animals, directly speaking out on their behalf and assisting others to do the same. The field of animal law has been shaped by his many personal and professional contributions to the field. He has sponsored legislation to help animals of all kinds, engaged in litigation over abuses of animals in entertainment, and supported the efforts of others to enforce existing animal protection laws as well as to enact new ones. He is as generous with his time as he is with his financial support, providing encouragement and advice to all people and organizations interested in protecting animals.
