Animal Law Education - ALE
Voiceless believes in the power of education and the importance of critical thinking to ensure today's youth are tomorrow's change-makers. Voiceless has been leading the way in Australia with a new, exciting field: Animal Protection Education (APE) and Animal Law Education (ALE).
Voiceless is continuing to build and support the animal law movement across Australia through their Animal Law Education program.
In collaboration with the Centre for Professional Legal Education, and in consultation with animal law academics around the country, Voiceless is creating online resources to assist in the teaching of animal law at Australian universities.
These resources will be freely available to both existing and new animal lecturers, consisting of various topic modules, such as 'Animal Ethics', 'Wild Animals in the Law' and 'Agricultural Animals in the Law'. Within each module, Voiceless is preparing high-quality presentations, podcasts and tutorial activities, in collaboration with global animal experts.
Voiceless is continuing to support the animal law education community by hosting the Animal Law Education Workshop in November 2018, which brings together animal law academics from across Australia and New Zealand. They are also maintaining support of student-focused initiatives, such as the ANIMAL Moot and delivering guest lectures into animal law units across the country, as well as animal law conferences and events.
