Canadian Animal Law Conference 2022

🗓 September 16, 2022 – September 18, 2022

🌎 University of Toronto Faculty of Law

The Canadian Animal Law Conference is an annual conference focused on animal law, with an emphasis on Canada and North America, but informed by global approaches. This year, the Conference features an exciting in-person program with thought-provoking presentations by leading experts from around the world—including lawyers, scholars, politicians, scientists, and advocates. The keynote speaker is Martha Nussbaum, professor of law and philosophy at the University of Chicago.

Anyone is welcome to attend, and the program is of interest to both legal and non-legal audiences.

In 2022, the Canadian Animal Law Conference will feature an entire day devoted to the North American Animal Law Conference on Friday, September 16, in the lead-up to the main Conference. The program for this special day will feature a Scholars Track of presentations, offered in partnership with the Brooks Institute for Animal Rights Law & Policy. The Scholars Track is an opportunity for attendees to hear from experts in the field of animal law and policy, in a moderated, keynote-style format conducive to deeper thought and consideration of a particular topic. Featuring prominent speakers from across North America, the Scholars Track is guaranteed to be a highlight.

The annual Student Animal Law Conference will also take place on Friday, September 16, and will feature a program of interest to law students in Canada and abroad. Admission to the Student Animal Law Conference for law students is included in the price of a student ticket.

We look forward to seeing you in Toronto!
