Pardon the partial self-interest, but the below-mentioned conference (at which I will be speaking) has all the makings of a faboo event. I spoke at the First Global Animal Law Conference back in 2002 (I believe) and it was great. The field has grown enormously in the intervening decade and this conference reflects that growth.
The 2nd Global Animal Law Conference will be held in Barcelona, Spain on July 10-11, 2014. Our goal is to bring together some the best legal minds from around the world to discuss the many and varied animal law issues and challenges that so many of us face.
Over the two-day Conference we expect to have more than 25 speakers from over 15 countries, most of whom are internationally known law professors who have taught and written on animal issues. The Conference is limited to 180 attendees, and will be conducted entirely in in English.
The history of the 1st Global Conference, ten years ago, suggests that this will be an important event for all attendees who seek to expand their own network of personal connections, develop global strategies to improve animal welfare and increase their understanding of our diverse cultures and legal systems around the world.
Our agenda is ambitious and we believe this Conference will help set the legal and scholarly agenda for animal law in the following years.
We hope you will be able to join us in this exciting endeavor. This link http://www.derechoanimal.info/eng/page/3007/registration will take you to the conference website where you will find more information about registration and housing.
