Resources for Animal Law

For lawyers and legal professionals keen on animal law, the following resources may prove invaluable:

Brooks Animal Law Digest: Canada Edition

Starting in October 2021, the University of Toronto Faculty of Law partnered with The Brooks Institute for Animal Rights Law and Policy to publish the Brooks Animal Law Digest: Canada Edition (the “Digest”), a free twice-a-month update on developments in Canadian animal law written by the University of Toronto Animal Law Research Associate. This is the companion Digest to the US version of this project, which is housed at the Brooks McCormick Jr. Animal Law & Policy Program at Harvard Law School. In 2023, the first year-end compendium of the Digest was published: “Recent Development in Canadian Animal Rights Law & Policy: 2023 Year in Review.”

Animal Law Research Guide

In March 2022, the Bora Laskin Law Library at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law launched an Animal Law Research Guide, consisting of lists of sources (books, chapters, book reviews, theses, journal articles, legislation, leading cases, reports, podcasts and documentaries) in Canadian animal law, perfect for students looking for a research paper topic and getting started in their literature review or for more senior scholars looking for orientation in terms of sources available in Canadian animal law.

These resources offer comprehensive insights and updates in the field of animal law, perfect for both new researchers and seasoned scholars.
