Animal Welfare Legal Issues
|Subtitle||Animal Law & Education Project (ALEP)|
Northern Rivers CLC held a community forum to gauge interest in animal welfare legal issues that resulted in the formation of the volunteer-based Animal Law & Education Project (ALEP).
ALEP is comprised of lawyers, law students and animal carers and engages in community education and law reform activities.
ALEP lobbied the local Southern Cross University Law School to offer an Animal Law unit over the summer semester.
ALEP held a community forum on animal protection laws and partnered with Southern Cross University’s Animal Law unit academics to run the Animal Law Conference ‘The Road Ahead’, which addressed the shortfalls in legal protections for animals.
In May 2012 they presented two animal law workshops at the CLCs NSW Conference.
