There has never been a more important time for animal law education around the world. The pandemic has laid bare the real and present threat of zoonotic disease, more and more wildlife species are highly endangered, intensively farmed terrestrial and aquatic animals are being consumed at ever-increasing numbers, and the link between animal abuse and human violence underscores the risks that exist even within the family home. Education is an essential part of any solution to these problems, and animal law, in particular, has the power to make systemic change for large numbers of animals and humans. Animal law has historically been viewed as an outlier subject within the academy, but that is starting to change, slowly. In this presentation, we explore both the roots and the present-day challenges of the animal law education movement. And throughout, we highlight some of the essential and difficult cross-border work that is being done by creative animal law attorneys around the world.
