Animal Law: An International Movement

The Animal Law Conference is the central gathering point of the global animal law community. The Animal Law Conference gives attorneys, law students, professors, and activists from around the world a place to share ideas, knowledge, and practical skills about advancing the interests of animals through the legal system. Today, the conference has become one of the largest and most popular of its kind, featuring some of the most respected voices in the field of animal law.

This year’s conference will feature cutting-edge global animal law issues including protecting animals in their native countries; international marine mammal challenges; animal testing outside the US; factory farming worldwide; animals in constitutions; litigation and legislation updates; and much more. Distinguished international speakers include Hon. Justice Joel Ngugi, High Court of Kenya; Prof. Marita Gimenez-Candela, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona; Dr. Andrea Gavinelli, Animal Welfare Unit, European Commission; Dr. Song Wei, Law Institute, University of Science and Technology of China, and a host of others.

The Animal Law Conference is co-presented by Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark Law School, and the Lewis & Clark Student Animal Legal Defense Fund. We look forward to seeing you there!
