The Animal Law Centre (ALC) at NALSAR is the country’s first and so far, the only centre dedicated to research on animal laws. In the past, we have successfully run a one-year PG Diploma in Animal Protection Laws. 

About the Webinar Week

After the success of our webinar series conducted in July 2022 on the theme “Multilateral Perspectives in Animal Protection and Practice“, the Animal Law Centre presents its second webinar week, titled, “Aligning Perspectives in Animal Protection and Practice” in the first week of September, 2022, between the 1st and 5th of September, 2022.

This webinar series is meant to further the goals of Animal Law Centre by contributing to the scholarship on animal rights movement and to give insight through the sessions conducted that education or careers in the field of animal protection are existent, easily possible and enriching. Our speakers are considered stalwarts in the field, with many years of experience in studying as well as practicing animal protection through their extraordinary initiatives, pedagogy and authorship and well as expertise in the field. 


This series of the webinar tries to delve deeper into the nuances of animal protection and practice, through the myriad topics of discussions in our sessions. Via the medium of these series we hope to draw focus on how we can bridge the gap of the theoretical and practical frameworks of the animal liberation movement!
