Recently, members of the Institute of Animal Law of Asia (IALA), LL.M. graduates of the Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS) Lewis & Clark Law School, sat down with Professor Joyce Tischler, also known as “Mother of Animal Law” to share their news about the expansion of their work towards the development of animal law in Asian countries.
In the interview, Lu and Zihao shared about the status of the Institute of Animal Law of Asia (IALA), what countries are covered, the most pressing issues in their home countries, and strategic plans to change the landscape of the animal law field in Asia.
Professor Joyce Tischler teaches courses of Animal Law Fundamentals and Animals in Agriculture: Law and Policy, which Lu and Zihao have taken as part of the Animal Law LL.M. Program. Joyce herself is passionate about developing animal law in Asia and “bringing animal law to Asian countries is one of her major goals.” She was thrilled to hear about two of her former students from Asia launching the Institute of Animal Law of Asia (IALA).
