Law Dogs – Sit, Stay, Fetch a Statute. . .


The recent news that the Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale launched a pilot program allowing patrons to “check out” Monty, a therapy dog, got me thinking about other possible ways dogs have worked their way into law-related venues.

For instance, if you know one thing about Justia, it’s that we have our own posse of pups at work, so in that regard I guess we’ve got “legal portal offices” covered in any possible list.  (But to be clear, even though on the internet no one knows you’re a dog, the Justia pups did not write this post. . .)

Dogs can also be found in law offices, courts and even the California Governor’s office.

If you’ve got a story you’d like to share about a “law dog” you might know or work with we’d love to hear it or, better yet, send us a photo!  You can leave a comment here on our blog, or post on the wall of our “Law Dogs” Facebook page.
