The Faculty of Law in conjunction with the Otago Student Animal Legal Defense Fund presents this public lecture.
The legal protection of animals is progressing all around the world. What is animal law, where does it come from, and how is it evolving? Why can we say that it is progressing worldwide? What are its main strengths and weaknesses in order to protect the welfare of animals against cruelty and suffering, either legally or illegally perpetrated?
In her talk, Sabine Brels will explore these questions in providing a global overview of animal law at three levels: National, European and International. She will also look at the current efforts to set up a universal protection of animal welfare. Lastly, she will present the new Global Animal Law (GAL) Project (online at:globalanimallaw.org) aiming to improve the law for the animals all around the world.
