Summary Summary: "Laws governing the treatment of animals have been in place in the legal systems of Australia and New Zealand for many years, however, the study of animal law as an academic discipline and as part of legal education is a recent development in Australasia. Written by Deborah Cao (Griffith University), with chapters by Steven White (Griffith University) and Katrina Sharman (Voiceless), and a foreword by the Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG, Animal Law in Australia and New Zealand aims to contribute to establishing and furthering animal law as an independent branch of legal study in these countries. Part I of the book considers the philosophical, scientific and historical aspects of the treatment of animals in relation to law, providing background against which animal law can be examined as a discipline and a branch of law. It considers the legal status of animals and discusses animal protection within the existing legal framework. Part II of the book focuses on animal law in practice in Australia and New Zealand, covering animal welfare law and the key provisions of the relevant laws. Later chapters detail the regulation of the treatment of companion animals, farm animals, wild animals and animals used in research. Animal Law in Australia and New Zealand is a factual and analytical text. It has been written for university law students undertaking animal law, animal welfare law or animal rights courses. Academics interested in animal welfare and the environment in general, lawyers who are interested in animal welfare and environment, animal rights advocates, and general readers with an interest in animal welfare will also find this book informative."--Publisher description
