Animal Law Research Guide

The Animal Law Research Guide provides guidance for students researching animal law and advocacy, as well as the discussion of animals in the fields of philosophy, cultural studies, gender and women's studies, environmental studies, and literary theory.

This research guide is geared to students at the University of the Western Cape who are researching issues related to animal law. 

Animal law is a broad topic that may encompass the relationship between animals and justice through various lenses, including what justice for animals demands of us, legally, politically, and culturally; and how the animal rights movement intersects with movements for human social justice.
