2016 Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series

voiceless-animals.pngAnimals have traditionally been overlooked in politics, resulting in laws that fail to protect them from exploitation, abuse and neglect. This Federal Election year, the Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series will look at the rapidly growing global movement to represent animals in politics, and use political processes to achieve positive change for animals.

This Federal Election year, the Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series will look at the rapidly growing global movement to represent animals in politics, and use political processes to achieve positive change for animals.

The 2016 Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series will feature prominent voice and pioneer of this political movement, Marianne Thieme.

Lawyer, activist and leader of the Dutch Party for the Animals, Thieme will consider her role in shaping the animal protection debate in The Netherlands and across the globe, and how playing politics is essential to deriving positive legal reforms for animals.

Local Australian legal experts will also present on key animal protection issues for the upcoming Federal Election, including live animal exports, the commercial killing of kangaroos, and the need for an Independent Office of Animal Welfare.
