UK Centre for Animal Law (A-law)

The UK Centre for Animal Law (A-law) is a charity which brings together lawyers and other people interested in animal protection law to share experience and to harness that expertise for the benefit of animals, by securing more comprehensive and effective laws and better enforcement of existing animal protection laws.

In the UK we are unique as an organisation, focusing on promoting knowledge and understanding - both amongst lawyers, universities, animal protection groups and the wider public - about animal protection laws in the UK and elsewhere around the world. We do this through publications, including The UK Journal of Animal Law, training seminars, conferences and online resources and through contributing strategic legal assistance in support of animal protection group projects.

Through our work, we (a) increase the legal capacity of the animal protection community to be better able to use the law to protect animals, and (b) increase the depth of understanding of animal law within the UK legal community, which helps make law and justice in the UK more effective in protecting animals.
