Animalaw – Visions for the Future


UFAW is collaborating with A-LAW in the organisation of an online conference to celebrate the bicentenary anniversary of Martin’s Act 1822, the first national legislation to protect animals from cruel treatment in the world.

To mark this special occasion, a panel of 40 distinguished speakers from across the globe, will be sharing their vision for the future of animal law in a series of talks over five days (18-22 July 2022). They will look at what we have achieved, and ask where do we go from here to strengthen animal law? Each day will focus on a different area.


Day 1 (July 18th): “About the animal. Reflecting science in law” including a keynote talk from Mike Radford OBE. 

Day 2 (July 19th): “Historic and contemporary perspectives on animal law”

Day 3 (July 20th): “National and international representation of animals” including a keynote talk from Kim Stallwood.

Day 4 (July 21st): Parallel sessions on “Agricultural systems” with a keynote from Joyce Tischler and “The legal framework supporting the best welfare and protection”

Day 5 (July 22nd): “Education and young voices”


All sessions can be watched live or on-demand in your own time for the remainder of the year. Wrap around work/personal commitments.
