Animal Law Committee


The Animal Law Committee comprises of a group of over 400 members interested in animal welfare and laws regulating the treatment of animals. Using its members' collective knowledge, the Animal Law Committee aims to raise awareness about the role of the law in animal welfare and provide education to the legal profession and wider community, while increasing understanding about the importance of protecting animals from abuse and neglect.

The Committee's members are a diverse range of individuals, including law students to practitioners in large commercial firms, sole practitioners, and government and in-house lawyers. However, a common theme amongst Committee members is a passion and desire to use our legal skills and the law to help improve the lives of animals.
