Lecture in Limoges

Lecture in Limoges

On 10 November 2016, Hannah Brown, ALAW’s Legal and Project Manager, spoke at a conference in Limoges, France on the status of animals in common law jurisdictions.

The conference, entitled “The links between ethics and law—the example of animals” looked at the way ethic influences the law in the context of animals and was organised by the Law and Economic Sciences Departments at the University of Limoges.

Hannah explained how under common law, people are categorised as persons and animals are categorised as things, and the consequence this has for animals in terms of protection and potential rights.

She shared a stage with Antoine Goetschel, President and founder of the Global Animal Law Project, and Prof. Marita Gimenez Candela, professor at the Faculty of Law at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

Hannah’s lecture will be published at the beginning of 2017.
