We support animal welfare groups achieve their objectives by using legal strategies and we support the sector with our legal education and resources.
Helping animal welfare groups to help animals! What we can do…
to support your animal advocacy or campaign group.
The Law & Animal Welfare Reform
Read this account from A-LAW’s Legal Policy Director and barrister, Alan Bates, about how law can drive reform of animal welfare laws and act as a powerful tool to protect and advance animal interests.
We work with animal welfare and campaign groups to help them find legal soluctions to welfare problems. We help identify ways in which the law can be strengthened and better enforced. We work collaboratively with groups to help them identify legal routes to change.
Resources for the animal welfare community.
Our website contains a range of legal resources and information. We also have a dedicated Animal Law News section, with the latest animal law and policy developments, including recent cases, news and analysis.
Talking Animal Law Podcast
Stay updated through our podcast, Talking Animal Law, with a new episode on the last Wednesday of each month. We shine a light on debate topics, discuss ethics and animal welfare, and analyse recent cases and legislation concerning animal interests.

“A-LAW is a great source of information and debate. The Journal also provides a sense of community with other lawyers specialising in animal welfare law. We find the articles extremely helpful in our work in the animal welfare sector.”
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).
