LeakyCon Portland has ended
Hi there! Welcome to the LeakyCon Sched.org! Please note, that signing up for this site or indicating which sessions you will be at is not at all required. You cannot reserve a seat to a session on this site; if a session looks "full" it’s only because we input the capacity of the rooms. All sessions at LeakyCon are first-come first-serve except for the autograph and photo-booth sessions that indicate otherwise. Lit programming may still only be attended by those who have a Lit badge (these are now sold out). Again: you do not have to sign up for this site or use it in any way in order to go to any event at LeakyCon. it’s a way for you to find other people who are interested in the same things you are, and a way for you to show your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and beyond what you’re interested in at the conference. But it is not in ANY way a ticketing system. We hope you enjoy surfing the schedule!

Magical Beasts and The Law

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Harry Potter story lines are replete with magical and not-so-magical animals. These include basilisks, blast-ended skrewts, bowtruckles, cats, centaurs, dragons, flobberworms, gnomes, hippogriffs, phoenix, werewolves, winged horses, and so many more. Some of them are loved and pampered. Others are misused and abused. This presentation will explore the laws of  muggle society applicable to the care, maintenance, and exhibition of animals, and will discuss how those laws would apply to the creatures in the Wizarding world.
