The law schools and universities can be positioned to be part of the major opinion leaders for progress in animal issues. They show understanding for the existing practices of ‘animal users’, their approach and the legal-based common interests relating to society and an animal-friendly world.
Idea behind this:
Universities and law schools profit from public funding and public interest and can invite worldwide leading experts to cooperate with them. On a local level, these institutions can play a leading role in cooperating with local politicians, state veterinarians and the media. Their positions can have an important effect on changes to the legal system.
