CAWSEL (Courses on Animal Welfare Science, Ethics and Law) are delighted to return to St Catharine’s College, University of Cambridge, for the Law and Companion Animal and Horse Welfare course on 12-15 September 2018.

What is CAWSEL?

CAWSEL is a professionally developed range of courses providing attendees with a broad appreciation of animal welfare science, ethics and law. With a legacy spanning over two decades, CAWSEL is comprised of four Courses aimed at veterinarians, veterinary nurses, animal welfare researchers, animal science researchers, students and animal charity workers or campaigners. Historically, the courses have attracted students from over 25 countries world-wide.

Law and Companion Animal and Horse Welfare is a 4-day course covering topics such as:

* Legislation protecting all domesticated species;

* Companion animal welfare issues including: cruelty, neglect, shelter animals;

* Human–animal relationships (historical and contemporary): influence of culture, socio-economic background and urbanisation;

* Horse welfare: effects of housing and management systems, training procedures, reproduction management, exercise and work on horse welfare.

Reader in Law at the University of Aberdeen and trustee of the UK Centre for Animal Law, Mike Radford OBE, will deliver the material on Animal Welfare and Law during the first three days of the course. He will be joined by experts in the field of companion animals: Dr Anthony Podberscek (University of Sydney) editor-in-chief of Anthrozoös; Dr Robert Hubrecht, Chief Executive and Scientific Director of UFAW; Dr Irene Rochlitz, University of Cambridge.

Those interested in the law element of the course only can choose to attend the first three days of course at a special rate.

We also offer Student, Charity rates and discounts for booking 2 or more Courses. We take online registrations only for all four Courses. Find out more on our official website: www.cawsel.com.
