Animal Groups

We are pleased to support animal advocacy groups, who work tirelessly to advance animal interests. We count many animal groups amongst our members, and they benefit from our legal journal, news and low cost legal training packages.

Membership benefits

Animal advocacy groups can benefit from A-LAW’s Organisational Membership, which includes a range of benefits including subscription to The UK Journal of Animal Law, reduced cost legal training, bespoke training packages and free advertisement of legal vacancies (including posts suitable for someone with a legal qualification) on the A-LAW website (subject to discretion).

Legal Resources

Our website contains a range of legal resources and information, including details about animal law courses, articles and relevant links. Keep an eye out for our forthcoming news area, which will help you to stay abreast of the latest legal news and developments concerning animal protection.

Legal Help

We can help direct organisations and campaigners to appropriate channels to find legal advice and assistance and will do so, wherever possible. Our dedicated team of volunteers may also be able to help with projects or campaigns requiring some legal skills or knowledge.
