Association of Lawyers for Animal Welfare (ALAW) has announced the release of the 3rd edition of its one of a kind student magazine, Animal Justice.
There is no denying that animal protection is a growing area of interest in the UK. In recent years we have seen an exponential growth in veganism, increased public outrage for animal cruelty offences and disdain for the disregard of animal sentience and sanctity. An increase in law creation and enforcement will naturally follow. ALAW itself has been the recipient of increased membership and interest in recent years, especially in its student team.

The ALAW Student Team responded to this growth of interest by putting together an online magazine. The e-zine is aimed at students interested in or studying animal law and includes contributions from such students, academics and practitioners alike.

The previous editions were well received by the community and fortified ALAW’s resolve to publish Animal Justice bi-annually.

The latest edition shows how far the team has come with this exciting and insightful content. In this edition we see a thoughtful piece on religious slaughter, a reminder that crustaceans are yet to be considered eligible for protection laws despite growing evidence that they suffer, and careers advice from the student guide editor at Chambers and Partners. 

Animal protection lawyer David Thomas has said that ‘Animal Justice is fresh, thought-provoking and provides an invaluable insight into how young people approach the ethical and scientific issues around the use of animals by humans.
