ABSTRACT

This report summarizes the 9th Symposium of Fundamental Law held in Tokyo on July 4, 2015. Association of Fundamental Law holds a collaborative symposium annually on a variety of topics, such as "Nuclear Hazard and Law” (2012), "Family and Law” (2013) and "Youth and Law” (2014). A symposium talks about law and values on selected topics beyond written laws. This year, the association focused on the topic "Animals and Law - Is it Possible to Overcome Anthropocentrism?" They chose this topic because our relationship with animals is not systematically discussed in the legal field, so there are many fresh and broad visions of the topic. Five legal scholars who have different specializations talked about animal law, and their talks are summarized in the following sections.
