The increasingly widely established discipline of animal rights law is often discussed from an Anglo-American perspective. The aim of this Roundtable is to open the floor to animal law scholars working in the continental civil law tradition in order to enrich and diversify the debate on animal personhood, extending it beyond the English-speaking world. Experts from various European countries will highlight the current legal status of animals in their jurisdictions and discuss what animal legal personhood could look like in practice. The focus of the event will be on discussion and intellectual exchange.

Organised by the GRN Think Tank programme on Animals and Biodiversity, together with the Cambridge Centre for Animal Rights Law.
