Sandton, South Africa
Natasha Dolezal, director of International Animal Law, together with Animal Law Reform South Africa, Professor David Bilchitz, Ban Animal Trading South Africa, and attorney Amy Wilson (Hogan Lovells) have organized a discussion focussed on animal law. We will cover a broad range of topics from an introduction to animal law, its growth through the years (in Universities/courts/through legislation), animal law in practice: in the U.S (in particular under the Trump Administration, lessons and hot topics) and the South African context (current, post-apartheid and looking forward), working with animal organisations and developments through legislation and litigation.
