ABSTRACT

The first edition of the book “Le droit animalier“, written by Professors Jean-Pierre Marguénaud, Florence Burgat and Jacques Leroy, has been published by Presse Universitaire de France in March 2016. As its title promises, this is an academic work dealing with a field of law related to animals, called “droit animalier”, which is on the rise in France. The release of this book has been preceded by a major change of legislation concerning the status of animals in the Civil Code. Introduced by Law n° 2015-177 of 16 February 2015, Article 515-14 of Civil Code proclaims that “animals are living and sentient beings”.
