#40: Animal Law Clinics in Law Schools

Animal Justice 7 September 2019 16

September 6, 2019

It’s our back-to-school show! Peter and Camille discuss animal law clinics at U.S. law schools, and why it’s time for Canada to jump on the bandwagon. Many schools south of the border offer animal law clinics, including two at Lewis & Clark, a new one at Harvard, and Michigan State—all providing incredible learning opportunities for students, and resulting in meaningful work that helps advance animal protection.

In the news, we fill you in on how Animal Justice is going to court in October to help fight the removal of anti-Canada Goose ads on Toronto transit shelters; why lawyers are hoping to bring two animal cases to the Supreme Court of Canada (the Lucy the elephant case, and the Santics “dangerous dog” case from Vancouver); and a new study that proves compassion for animals is linked to greater respect for human rights, too.

This episode’s hero is the UK Labour Party for it’s strong new animal welfare manifesto, and the zero is the B.C. Conservation Officer Service, which indiscriminately shoots bears to death while failing to fine people who leave out garbage, food, and other bear attractants.

We’re taking a few weeks off from the podcast, but don’t worry—we’ll be back in early October. See you then, listeners!
