1. Why was the conference not in-person this year?
In light of the health concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in order to keep our conference participants, speakers and staff safe, we offered a fully virtual event this year. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Does it matter what browser and equipment I use to watch the conference content?
Yes! If you registered for the 2020 virtual Animal Law Conference and are watching sessions you missed on-demand, the virtual event platform works best with the most current version of Google Chrome or Firefox. It’s also recommended that you access the content via a desktop or laptop computer for the best visual experience, although the platform does optimize to whichever device you select.
3. Does the conference have an anti-harassment policy?
Yes, the conference does have an anti-harassment policy which we expect everyone participating, presenting at or associated with the conference to adhere to. To view the policy, click here.

5. Were CLE credits offered?
Yes, the conference was approved by the Oregon State Bar for 13.75 continuing legal education (CLE) credits, including 1 hour of ethics and 1 hour of mental health/substance abuse credit. Attorneys were required to watch all sessions, either live or on-demand, to receive full credit.
6. Was the conference content appropriate for all audiences?
Conference presenters were asked to include an audience warning before showing graphic content in their presentations. Given the nature of the subject matter, however, some presentations contained content which may have been upsetting, e.g. photo or video evidence that depicts animal cruelty. Attendees could choose to look away during these moments, if they preferred not to see this type of content. Younger attendees could register at the discretion of their parent or guardian.
7. Where do I find the written materials for CLE participants?
Materials submitted by the speakers were posted on the conference website at this link, including PDF copies of PowerPoint presentations, if approved by individual presenters.
8. Was the conference recorded?
The panels and keynote presentation were video-recorded and will be posted to the Animal Law Conference YouTube channel in early 2021. You may subscribe to the YouTube channel in advance to be notified whenever new videos are posted.
9. Was there conference merchandise for sale?
We are still offering conference t-shirts, sweatshirts, earbuds, blue light glasses, tumblers, and more via this link.
