Our legal experts discuss two legal cases that made the headlines in 2020. 

Friends of Antique Cultural Treasures Ltd v DEFRA [2020] EWCA Civ 649, concerning a challenge to the legality of the Ivory Act 2018, and R (National Farmers Union & Anor) v Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs [2020] EWHC 1192 (Admin) challenging a decision not to grant licences to kill badgers in furtherance of its policy for control of bovine TB. 

Barristers, Frances Allen and Alan Bates explain what judicial review is, how it was used in each of these respective cases and what lesson can be learnt from these legal challenges. 

Talking Animal Law, produced by the UK Centre for Animal Law (A-LAW), features fortnightly discussions on topical issues and ethical theories about the treatment of animals with leading experts in the fields of law, ethics and science.
