About the Animal Lawyers’ Network
Our Animal Lawyers’ Network is a commmunity space where lawyers interested in animals and the law can meet, learn and support each other.
The Animal Lawyers’ Network runs our Legal Skills Lab, supporting animal advocates who want to learn more about the law. You don’t have to be a lawyer to join. We welcome anyone who shares our vision of a world where animals are fully protected by law.
We understand the importance of connecting with other like minded people. Each term we hold at least one event in person so that our members across the UK can meet, learn and share ideas.
These events may include informal meetups, seminars, sanctuary visits and more and are organised by our Animal Lawyers’ Network.
Legal Skills Lab
Our Animal Lawyers’ Network runs an online Legal Skills Lab, with sessions taking place each month over a lunch hour (1 – 2pm UK time).
The Legal Skills Lab aims to build legal skills in areas ancillary to animal advocacy, such as law making, political advocacy and more.
Legal Skills Lab for Animal Advocates
The theme for this term (September to December 2023) is Parliament and Government.
We are pleased to bring our members, four experts to help members to understand the law and policy making process.
Free Legal Skills Lab
These sessions are FREE to members (and you don’t need to be a lawyer to join – just share our vision of a world where animal interests are fully protected by law).
Watch our launch event
Our Animal Lawyers Network officially launched on 15 September 2022 with an Academic Pathways careers event. We were joined by a panel of experts from the academic community, who shared their experience of advancing animal interests as part of a legal academic practice.
