Professor Stefanie Pearlman and her co-author Professor Melissa Serfass of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock were selected to receive the Dr. Joel Fishman Professional Publication Award for their publication, Animal Welfare Laws: A Legal Research Guide. The award selection committee for the Government Law Libraries Special Interest Section recognized the publication as a practical and valuable resource for an area of law that is not widely addressed. 

The legal research guide focuses on the growing body of animal welfare laws in the United States. It updates and incorporates material from the authors’ previous research guide, Animals Confined for Human Benefit: A Legal Research Guide and adds additional sections discussing animal welfare protections for other animals, including wildlife and companion animals.
