Macquarie Animal Law Symposium – Speeches by BAWP Members

On 18 October 2012, Panel Barristers Graeme McEwen and Melissa Perry QC and BAWP Secretriat member Jed Goodfellow spoke at the Animal Law Symposium titled ‘Animal Law: Tomorrow’s Law: The Future of Animal Law.’ The Symposium was co-hosted by Macquarie University and RSPCA Australia.

You can view Graeme McEwen’s speech on strategic litigation here. Unfortunately, only about 4 minutes of Graeme’s speech was recorded, but the question and answer session was forthright. The text of the speech from which he spoke may be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

You can view Melissa Perry QC’s speech on intensive factory farming here.

You can view Jed Goodfellow’s speech on farm animal welfare regulation here.

The text of the speeches will be later published by Macquarie University. For details of other speakers and the conference program, click here.
