Animals and the law lectures

I’m taking a break from overeating to give you some very important information about a set of lectures coming up over the coming months in the UK at University of Cambridge.

The first lecture starts tomorrow (Tuesday October 11, 2016) and the series continues until May next year.

If you want to attend, show up at the given date/time and use the email address at the bottom of the list if you need more information.

Talking Animals, Law and Philosophy

A veritable animal turn has occurred in many fields of thinking, sweeping away outdated philosophical and scientific beliefs, and making room for more thoughtful, sensible study of the relation between humans and other animals. Law and legal science, however, have remained relatively untouched by this revolution. The talk series “Talking Animals, Law and Philosophy” wants to remedy this situation by providing a welcoming, engaging and rigorous forum for debate and ideas about the relations between animals, law and philosophy.
