"Each animal possesses intrinsic value, remarkable complexity and inherent dignity and, as such, is deserving of respect and moral concern. Canada needs to restructure its legal framework that governs animals, recognizing they are sentient beings and embracing its responsibilities with regard to their interests." – Barbara Cartwright, CEO, Humane Canada
"It has to be acknowledged that animals are deeply entwined in our cultural, social and economic lives--whether we are talking about animals as pets, animals as part of our industrial food supply system, animals as sentient beings in need of protection from inhumane treatment or even animals involved in criminal offences." – Chief Justice Robert Bauman, B.C.
According to pioneer animal law educator and practitioner, Victoria Shroff, animal law today is in a similar position as environmental law was 30 years ago: it’s recently emerged from a fringe practice area into a discipline in its own right. In Canada, Shroff is playing a leading role in that evolution as she advocates for a shift away from the long-held view of animals being merely a form of property under the law. As part of her practice and teaching, she aims to secure access to justice for animals, she has written this ground-breaking text, Canadian Animal Law which provides an insightful look at the burgeoning field of animal law as it pertains to both companion and wild animals.
A Unique Volume
Canadian Animal Law is an engaging, accessible read that will appeal to a broad audience, from law students and lawyers, to animal rights activists and members of the general public. Drawing on her more than 20 years of experience in the animal law field – in both the courtroom and the classroom – Shroff provides commentary and analysis of the main issues in animal law, with a focus on how it intersects with more mainstream practice areas, including family law, criminal law, housing, wills and estates, environmental law and professional liability. Her insightful examination of these topics is illustrated with interesting real-life examples, case studies and case law and an understanding of intersectional points of view. In addition, this unique book includes chapters dedicated to international animal law, wildlife law and animals in research and science.
Shroff’s skill in explaining often complex concepts in easy-to-understand language makes Canadian Animal Law the go-to book for a wide range of readers, including:
