Edited Press Release

The link for an equine-related Committee on Animals and the Law of the New York State Bar Association [has gone] live. It’s a webinar on the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act (HISA): Its Impact on Equine Welfare, NYS Racing and Regulation, and Federal Administrative and Constitutional Law.

The webinar will be held Thursday, April 18 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT. Attorneys who attend are eligible for up to three NYS MCLE credit hours. These credit hours are valid in almost every U.S. jurisdiction. Non-attorneys are welcome to attend.

The Committee on Animals and the Law (COAL) of the New York State Bar Association has organized this excellent event. Speakers will explain the legal structure created by HISA, HISA’s impact and future; the legal ramifications of HISA on state, federal and private actors; and HISA’s effect on equine welfare. We expect to wrap up with a lively and informative discussion panel among the speakers. We hope attendees will leave the webinar with a greater understanding of HISA and the state of the State of New York’s regulated racing industry.

What our roster of speakers will have to say promises real value to legal practitioners and others involved in racing. If you have any particular questions or comments you think would make good fodder for the discussion panel, please don’t hesitate to let Fiona Farrell know in advance at

Our program faculty includes:

Lucinda Finley, University of Buffalo Law School
Joi Garner, General Counsel, SVP, and Secretary, New York Racing Association
Lisa Lazarus, CEO, Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority
Robert Williams, Executive Director, New York State Gaming Commission
