First virtual bridge between two continents and three academic centers dedicated to Animal Law

2012.10.16



The “Center for Animal Law Studies” (Lewis & Clark Law School, Portland, United States of America), the “Master in Animal Law and Society” (Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain) and the doctoral programme “Law and Animals” (Law School of the University of Basel, Switzerland) are planning the establishment of an International Online Forum on “Law and Animals”.

By means of this project, three most important Universities (one from United States of America and two from Europe), are joining knowledge and efforts, to create a bridge that will offer acces to academic information regarding animal welfare and animal law, and last but not least, will grant the premises for a joint international project aimed to study and improve the world wide animal welfare legal framework.
This interactive forum is designed to be a learning and research tool for students with an academic, professional or personal interest in the field. It will offer them an important opportunity to connect, discuss and share information and questions with their peers, on a global level.

The members of the online forum can share resources (books, articles, web links etc.), exchange information, discuss pertinent topics, solve problems regarding their research or studies, debate on fundamental or current issues in animal law or simply ask questions, which will be answered by their peers, by the forum moderator, or by experts.

Even though at the beginning the online forum is designed to grant acces to the students in the respective animal law programmes of Portland, Barcelona and Basel, chances are that in time, it will develop into a potentially global network of prospective animal law scholars.

This projects reflects more then ever that one can put an ocean or a mountain between animal welfare researchers, but in the end they will find a way to join their efforts and careeres towards what truly apasionate them, care for animal welfare.
