HeaderCourses & Seminars

Established multi-disciplinary courses available to you

Given the fact that the law underpins all human interaction with animals, it follows that a sound understanding of the legal responsibilities pertaining to animals is essential information for all organisations, groups and/or individuals who are directly, or indirectly, involved with animals.

The contents and delivery of each course taught by International Animal-Law is adapted to suit the audience, and a legal background is not necessary for successful completion of the course. To date the Animals and the Law course taught by International Animal-Law has been attended by a wide range of professionals including lawyers, veterinarians, scientists, ethicists, and representatives from government and non-government organisations.

The Animals and the Law course has been delivered as face-to-face courses in Law Schools in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, as an online course for veterinary Masters students, adapted for presentation as a seminar series for Local Authorities in the United Kingdom, and is available online as a tailored education course for veterinarians and other professionals in New Zealand and Australia.

You have options on how to attend the IAL courses. There are face-to-face options presented on-site, or, you have on-line courses which are presented in convenient module form. See below for more information.

Ban Birds Sales & Breeding in Australia from Paris Yves Read on Vimeo.

Paris Yves Read from Melbourne, Australia has been campaigning to Ban Bird breeding and bird selling in Australia. This bird industry abuses and disregards the emotions and welfare of birds. There are thousands of backyard and commercial bird mills/farms all over Australia- Time that the breeders/sellers stopped! Time that the Australian State Governments introduced laws to protect all Birds!

Birds have parallet capacities to people related to mental functions:
  • Human-bird-brain-crop-thinking & cognition
  • feelings
  • emotions
  • equal & lasting relationships
  • dreams and aspirations
