Sherry Colb

Sherry F. Colb
CAF is sorry to hear of the untimely death of Sherry F. Colb, who was the 2019 Tom Regan Memorial Lecturer. We extend our deepest sympathies to her husband, and fellow legal scholar and animal advocate, Michael Dorf, and their two daughters, Meena and Amelia. Michael has written an appreciation of Sherry’s life and scholarship. Sherry was Professor of Law at Cornell University Law School, where she taught  courses in animal rights, evidence, and criminal procedure. She published articles in a variety of law reviews and wrote several books, including Beating Hearts: Abortion and Animal Rights; Mind If I Order the Cheeseburger?: And Other Questions People Ask Vegans; and When Sex Counts: Making Babies and Making Law.
