Cooley Law School's Animal Law Society is holding a symposium to discuss current animal protection legislation in Michigan and how dog fighting can be stopped in the state.
The symposium is set for Saturday at Cooley's Grand Rapids campus.
Among the speakers are to be Jim Knorr, a retired U.S. Department of Agriculture special agent and the lead investigator in the Michael Vick dog-fighting case.
Other speakers include J.P. Goodwin, director of animal cruelty policy for the Humane Society of the United States; Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Raj Prasad; and state Rep. Harvey Santana.
The Detroit Democrat has introduced legislation that would create a state registry of animal abusers similar to the one for sex offenders.
The $20 admission cost includes lunch and light refreshments.
