Mini Law School: Our Legal Relationship with Animals
Animals hold important and varied places in people’s lives. On one hand, they are family members and cherished companions. On the other, they are zoo exhibits, food, and research subjects. How does Canadian law serve their interests, and how does it fail to protect them? In this free public lecture, Schulich School of Law Professor Jodi Lazare explores the ways the law governs our complicated relationships with animals and the many challenges involved in balancing our interests and theirs.
