Preview of Module 2 of Tiger King Law

Module 2 of my legal/ethical environment survey course is devoted to the main sources of law in the U.S. legal system–State, federal, and international law–and is divided into six parts as follows:

  • A. Introduction to the main sources of law
  • B. State law
  • C. Federal law
  • D. International law
  • E. The problem of legal interpretation
  • F. Quiz & Discussion Post

The first five parts of Module 2 contain videos and reading materials, while the last part contains a quiz and discussion post, but because of our Tiger King theme this semester, each part features problems, questions, and materials relating to some aspect of the animal kingdom or to the protection of animals. Part A, for example, includes theme songs by the popular singer Doja Cat and the reggae artist Super Cat. Next, Part B contains the case of Wilkerson v. Florida, a State case challenging the constitutionality of Florida’s animal cruelty law. Part C then features the federal Endangered Species Act of 1973 as well as the case of Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife. Lastly, Part D contains a proposed international treaty, the International Convention for the Protection of Animals, while Part E features the case of Yates v. United States, a federal case involving a commercial fisherman. I will delve into the details of each of these parts of Module 2 in the next day or two. In the meantime, below the fold are some screenshots of the homepage of my course. (Note: these screenshots are from my Summer A class.)
