Please join the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Animal Law Practice Group, along with Jeremy Cohen of Boston Dog Lawyers, to learn about the latest issues and trends in pet law. Cohen handles all types of animal cases, such as:

  • Pet custody
  • Dangerous dog defense
  • Wrongful pet injury
  • Emotional support animals
  • Animal cruelty actions

His unique practice is growing, and Cohen has become the go-to person for these matters. We will also discuss pending legislation to regulate certain pet industries and how his cases have influenced changes pending at the State House.

This webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required by 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14, to participate in this program. After you register with the MBA, please look for an email from MassBar Education with the Webinar ID and Password. The email will be sent before the program.
