Leicester University Law Society A Law Student Group aims to fulfil the mission of A-Law: to promote knowledge and education about the law relating to animal protection, achieve a better legal framework for animals and see existing laws being applied properly.

 

The UK Centre for Animal Law (A-law) is a charity which brings together lawyers and other people interested in animal protection law to share experience and to harness that expertise for the benefit of animals, by securing more comprehensive and effective laws and better enforcement of existing animal protection laws. In the UK, they are unique as an organisation, focusing on promoting knowledge and understanding - both amongst lawyers, universities, animal protection groups and the wider public - about animal protection laws in the UK and elsewhere around the world.

As a student chapter, we will have guest speakers, conferences, volunteer days as well as work with animal rights lawyers to better educate students and the public on the importance of animal law. We will be writing for AJUK (Animal Justice UK which is affiliated with ALAW) as well as Leicester Student Law Review. This program is a great way for you to gain an insight into the field of animal law and learn about recent case law and legislation that has emerged, as well as learning about our current legal system and how it impacts the lives of animals today. You will also have the opportunity to network with lawyers worldwide, raise awareness by organising and hosting events and be involved in competitions, including the annual Animal Law Mooting competition hosted by A-Law, where there will be amazing prizes involved.

 

If you are interested in getting involved as part of the committee, please contact Beliz Inan: bi12@student.le.ac.uk. You do not have to be a committee member to attend events, however!

Please check out our Instagram (@lulsanimallaw) and Facebook page (LULS Animal Rights Law) as we will post all resources for students as well as events there. You can also find up-to-date law and cases of interest on the social media accounts.
