Liberty for Nonhumans?

Lecture no. 24 from the course: Liberty on Trial in America: Cases That Defined Freedom

Liberty for Nonhumans?

Taught by Professor Douglas O. Linder | 33 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Many Americans were initially excluded from “liberty and justice for all.” Is it possible that future trials will result in greater liberties for apes, cetaceans, and elephants? Learn how “Tommy” became the first chimpanzee to have a suit for his freedom filed on his behalf and why one judge on the New York Court of Appeals says the issue of fundamental rights for nonhuman animals is not going away.
