Global Animal Law GAL Association was founded in 2016 by Dr. iur. Antoine F. Goetschel in Zurich, after the GAL project was first launched in July 2014. GAL's goal is to improve the protection of all animals through law. In other words, GAL aims to provide the necessary expert legal guidance to improve the lives and well-being of all animals (companion, farm, lab, sport, entertainment and wild) in every country in the world at the national, regional and global level. The law is as a powerful means, and a decisive key, for the protection of animals.
