In this first episode, I am talking animal law with Peter Stevenson,  Chief Policy Advisor at Compassion in World Farming (CIWF). Peter is a qualified lawyer who has worked for nearly three decades in animal welfare. During this time, he played a leading role in winning the EU bans on veal crates, battery cages and sow stalls as well as a new status for animals in EU law as sentient beings. In October 2020, Peter was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list, in recognition of his tremendous contributions in the field of animal welfare. I talk to Peter talks about his career, the highs and lows, successes and obstacles and what he sees as the challenges ahead.

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.
