The Future of Animal Law in Australia

Join ALDF Founder & General Counsel Joyce Tischler as she tours
Australia with Voiceless, the animal protection institute, for the 2010 Animal Law Lecture Series.

Well, just as I’m getting the hang of which side of the sidewalk to walk on, it’s time to head back to the U.S. (they walk on the left over here, not the right, just as they drive their cars on the left side of the street).

My trip to Australia has been a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. With the help and backing of Voiceless, we delivered 13 presentations in seven cities in six jurisdictions in 10 days. I met many wonderful, committed animal activists and many lawyers and law students who are eager to use their skills to protect animals. I predict that animal law in Australia will continue to grow exponentially in the next five to ten years.

Australia is a beautiful and exciting country. Please come to visit. And, if you have read my other blog posts, please speak out for the animals in Australia who need your help.
