Animal law seeks to understand how the law governs our interactions with animals. It will cover existing animal welfare legislation and consider how different philosophical and ethical and jurisprudential perspectives inform the ways in which law regulates animals. The focus of the unit will be on comparing and contrasting the differing regulatory arrangements in respect of: companion animals, wildlife and endangered species; farm animals and related Agribusiness areas (farming practices, feedlots, environmental regulation, road transport and export); scientific experimentation; the entertainment industry (circuses, zoos and rodeos) and commercial food production. Consideration will also be given to international developments in animal law and role of lawyers in the litigation and enforcement of animal law matters.
