Dog Law! – Pic of the Week

Our collection often surprises me, and this week’s pic is no exception.  As I walked by a shelf I had passed many times before, there they were: not one, but two books on dog law.  These are just the items in our Reading Room, most of our items you have to request from the stacks.

Dog Law is by Mary Randolph.  Animal Law and Dog Behavior is by David Favre and Peter L. Borchelt.  Either book might be useful the next time Kelly does a post on a barking dog.

William and Kate Plus a Pre-nup?

With the marital celebrations of Prince William and Kate Middleton only a week away, the question flying around some people’s minds is whether Will and Kate have a pre-nuptial agreement (also known in England as a ‘marital property agreement‘) in place. The use of pre-nuptial agreements has not been widespread in England, due mainly to […]
