Faculty of Law Twilight Seminar Series - Practical Animal Rights: Linking Theory with Legal Advocacy

Katrina J Kluss (Barrister)

In association with Animal Law Week, you are invited to attend:

Practical Animal Rights: Linking Theory with Legal Advocacy

This presentation outlines some of the principal philosophies which underpin the arguments for legal recognition of rights for animals. It examines the way these philosophies are, and might be in future, adapted and implemented in legal practice and advocacy. The presentation highlights that an effective framework in which to link theory to practice can be found in an adaptation of John Rawls’ ideal and non-ideal theory, and suggests practical ways in which pragmatic law reform might be achieved in Australia within this framework.
