It looks like The Price is Right’s Bob Barker is concerned about the legal rights of animal. He is putting some big bucks where our hearts are — in finding ways to legally protect pets! This is from the Georgetown University press release.
Emmy award-winning television personality Bob Barker has made a $1 million donation to Georgetown University Law Center for the study of animal rights law.
Bob Barker’s gift will allow us to significantly increase our offerings in the growing field of animal rights law and provide our students with important hands-on training” said Georgetown Law Dean T. Alexander Aleinikoff. “We salute Mr. Barker for his leadership in the field of animal protection and thank him for his generosity to the Law Center.”
“All of us interested in making the world a better place for animals are delighted to have law schools of the stature of Georgetown University Law Center becoming increasingly involved in animal rights law,” said Barker.
Barker’s donation will be used to strengthen and expand the Law Center’s animal rights law curriculum, provide opportunities for students to work in the field, support student-initiated animal rights projects and sponsor conferences and symposia on subjects related to animal protection.
Bob is barking up the right tree!
